Join your colleagues and meet with members of Congress to advocate for family medicine. Learn about issues facing family medicine and best practices for sharing your story with elected officials in a virtual setting through a short series of on-demand training modules. FMAS is an excellent opportunity for family physicians to engage with policymakers and share solutions to our most pressing issues.
Sponsored by the American Academy of Family Physicians, FMAS educates participants on family medicine’s legislative priority issues, trains attendees on how to lobby on Capitol Hill, and allows participants to put these skills to use with federal legislators and their staff. Advocacy is a high priority of the AAFP and every family physician and educator can learn how to be effective in Washington and at home.
