We are medicine reorganized
We are physicians and other experts improving the health of caregivers, patients, and communities. We are committed to inclusion, diversity, equity, and access for all.
Here’s a snapshot of what we worked on in 2022:
MADE FOR MEDICINE
Dr. Laura Espy-Bell has partnered with the CMA to create an innovative way to provide a solution to redress the underrepresentation of African Americans in the medical field by supporting local Black youth by providing them with critical foundational knowledge, hands-on learning, simulations, case study analyses, mentoring and more.
ADVOCATING FOR HEALTH
Advocacy at the CMA involves supporting candidates and legislature that are supportive of science-based medicine and value the physician-patient relationship. We also provide our members with frequent public policy meetings, and training for physicians wanting to participate in local politics.
At the CMA we have a variety and ever growing number of communities for our members to participate in, like our Women in Medicine group, created to provide a space for women physicians to connect, network, and mentor others.
SUPPORTING YOUR PRACTICE
The CMA is committed to supporting local practices, big and small and we know that starts with supporting practice managers. Several times a year we hold Practice Manager Luncheons, that provide these invaluable employees with a chance to learn more about a topic relevant to their field and a chance to mingle.
ALWAYS LOOKING FORWARD
Coming up, the CMA is working on a peer support program for physicians, improved digital tools for members to connect with colleagues or resources, and so much more.
