    At the 2023 conference, change started with 276 family physicians coming to our nation’s capital to advocate for improved Medicare reimbursement, relief from administrative burden, and an enhanced primary care workforce

    Take an active role in shaping family medicine’s future when you come together with peers at the Family Medicine Advocacy Summit (FMAS). Whether you’re a first-time attendee or an advanced advocate, you’ll learn tactics for being a specialty champion. Plus, you’ll flex your skills when you lobby directly with members of Congress to influence public policies that affect your patients and practice.

    “Next to patient care, advocacy for better health care is the most important thing you can do and
    learning how to advocate effectively is the essential benefit of participating in FMAS.”
