MAFP and the Michigan Association of Osteopathic Family Physicians—which collectively represent more than 4,500 Family Physicians statewide—invite you to the 2016 Michigan Family Medicine Advocacy Day on February 23 in Downtown Lansing.
This annual event provides a valuable opportunity for Family Physicians, Family Medicine residents, and medical students to talk with legislators about issues impacting Family Medicine in Michigan, including access to primary care, team-based healthcare, primary care workforce issues, and payment and delivery reforms.
"Advocacy Day is a MUST ATTEND event because it provides a direct pipeline for connecting with your local representatives at the State Capitol. You will have the opportunity to raise your concerns, and to discuss and influence legislation and policy that directly relates to our education and practice of medicine. Collectively, we can impact the future of Family Medicine," said Libby Pionk, DO, Resident Chair, MAFP Board of Directors, about her experience attending last year's Advocacy Day.
There is no cost to attend Advocacy Day! Space is limited, however, so register early to reserve your spot.
