2023 MAFP Advocacy Day

Be the voice of Missouri Family Physicians by participating in Advocacy Day on February 13-14, 2023. We are pleased to host this year’s event at the Courtyard Marriott, Jefferson City, which will include a detailed legislative briefing on Monday, February 13, 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 and 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.
