Historic Inns of Annapolis Governor Calvert House

Join fellow family physicians, family medicine residents and medical students throughout Maryland for this FREE legislative learning opportunity on Thursday, February 1, 2024.

Be part of this important process with your academy colleagues. Gain insight into pressing legislative issues, take in helpful advocacy tips, learn how to convey your personal medical expertise, and become an active voice in Maryland Legislature.

Advocate for Family Medicine where you can

  • Develop relationships with legislators and their staff
  • Share personal stories related to health policy issues
  • Network with Family Medicine advocates across Maryland

The day will start by gathering together at the Historic Inns of Annapolis Governor Calvert House before going to the Maryland State House. Preparation time will include an orientation in the basics of lobbying, with guidance on how to focus talking points on current issues, the use of personal anecdotes, and how to convey personal medical expertise.

MDAFP members will then depart for the State House visits - all meetings will be scheduled for you and you will be assigned to groups so you won’t do this alone. There will also be a debriefing following legislative appointments.
