    Your Voice Can Impact Change!

    Play a vital role in shaping family medicine’s future by joining your colleagues to discuss critical issues. Attend this conference and you’ll learn tactics for advocating for the specialty, then lobby directly with members of Congress to influence the public policies affecting your patients and your practice.

    “FMAS is an incredible opportunity to gain experience and exposure in advocacy work. As a family med physician, it's our responsibility to fight for what's best for our patients. AAFP does a great job training us for this work.”
    —FMAS 2022 Attendee
