MAFP Advocacy Day

You have had a significant impact on legislation over the past several years, and we need you to continue to be the voice of Missouri Family Physicians by participating in Advocacy Day on February 26-27, 2024. This year’s event will be held at the Courtyard Marriott, Jefferson City, including a detailed legislative briefing on Monday, February 26, from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. This session will also be live-streamed via Zoom for those who register for that option.

We encourage you to invite a colleague, medical student, or resident to join you to promote the importance of family medicine and primary care. This is your opportunity to educate your State Senator and State Representative on issues that affect you, your profession, and your patients. YOU make a difference!
