2021 Advocacy Day Virtual Series

Be the voice of Missouri Family Physicians by participating in a virtual Advocacy Day on March 2, 2021.  In preparation for your meetings with your legislators, we have developed a series of virtual sessions for you to hear from the top Missouri leadership on healthcare issues that are important to you.  The proposed schedule is:

  • February 11 | 7:30 – 8:30 p.m. | Randall Williams, MD, Director, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services

All sessions will be held via Zoom and you will receive an email with the link prior to the event.  If you need a free Zoom account, click here to sign up.  Sessions will be recorded and access will be available after Advocacy Day through the MAFP Learning Management System.  The MAFP team will assist with scheduling your virtual appointments with your legislators as needed.

Legislator Appointments

  • MAFP will assist in setting up your legislator appointments as needed.  Please indicate your preference when you register.  Most appointments are around 15 minutes in length.
  • If you are utilizing a video communication platform (i.e., Zoom, GoogleMeet, WebEx, etc.), you will need to schedule the meeting using your account.  And, you will need to provide access information to the legislator you are meeting with.
  • You can find your legislator here:  https://www.senate.mo.gov/LegisLookup/Default.aspx which will provide links to their Missouri legislator webpage and their contact information.
  • We are here to help and will work with you to ensure your voice is heard at the Capitol.
Calling all Medical Schools and Residency Programs – Schedule a group of students or residents to participate in this year’s virtual events.  Let’s show our legislators that we are united and serious about taking care of our patients and protecting the scope of practice for family physicians.
