Michigan Association of Osteopathic Family Physicians (MAOFP) and Michigan Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) invite Family Physicians, family medicine residents, and medical students to Michigan Family Medicine Advocacy Day. The event is typically held in late February in Downtown Lansing each year.
Collectively, MAOFP and MAFP represent more than 4,500 Family Physicians statewide.
Advocacy Day is an annual event that provides family medicine advocates a valuable opportunity to meet with state legislators and their staff to discuss and share personal experiences regarding policy issues unique to Family Medicine. The future of the Medicaid program, access to primary care in underserved areas, and tackling administrative burdens necessary for freeing up time for patient care are among the issues that will be front and center in years to come.
