Advocacy

MAFP advocates for family physicians and the patients they serve.  Recent National Academy and Chapter membership surveys point out that aside from CME, members seek support through advocacy from the organization with the primary focus being in the legislative, policy and public health arenas on both the state and national levels.  To MAFP leadership, advocacy also means practice management support and assistance in navigating the various elements of healthcare reform in these “interesting” times.  MAFP leadership strives for an informed assignment writing membership to put faces on Family Medicine in Maryland in order to engage in discussions on public policy implications for family physicians and to gain skills to become effective advocates in our state.
