We Focus Our Efforts in Four Major Areas


The MMSA increases awareness of legislative issues affecting health care through frequent online updates and alerts, advocacy training, and educational workshops.

Health Promotion

Our volunteers work to promote healthy communities. The MMSA is actively engaged in campaigns to stop smoking, fight obesity, increase fitness, and prevent the spread of disease through our handwashing campaign. Alliance members support injury prevention awareness through helmet safety and seatbelt legislation.


We are committed to the MMS and Alliance Charitable Foundation, which awards grants for physician-led volunteer initiatives that provide access to care for the medically underserved, as well as community health initiatives that target public health issues. We also support the AMA Foundation to provide grants for medical education, research, and community health.


Support for medical families by recognizing needs, sharing common experiences and interests and providing educational and social networking events. Our members understand medicine, medical issues, and the medical family at all stages of the medical practice from training years through retirement.
