Our focus is Family Medicine. Get more involved in MassAFP, the only organization in Massachusetts fully dedicated to providing value to our Family Physician members and their patients through advocacy, education and workforce initiatives.
Legislative and Advocacy Committee
This committee recommends and advocates for policy on local legislation affecting the practice of family medicine, access to family physicians, and key issues affecting our patient population. This committee also works through the executive director to coordinate efforts with MassAFP's contract lobbyist and identifies legislation where the MassAFP could provide support and awareness through education (in collaboration with the education committee), advocacy, and leadership (through board involvement and other measures). We meet on a monthly basis and any MassAFP member interested in joining should contact email@example.com.

As you can see, these are very important areas for MassAFP to address. We are appointing workgroups to help formulate strategies, outcomes and timelines. Workgroups will be limited in the time and number of meetings. This is where we need your help!
We need members to help serve on these workgroups. Meetings will be via phone conference and limited to 3-5 meetings. If you have any interest in the above topics please help us by agreeing to serve on a workgroup.
If interested, email chapter executive Tricia Kennedy and she will provide you with more details. Thank you in advance - we NEED your participation, ideas and energy!
