Key Issues

The MMA supports physicians and patients through advocacy on crucial issues affecting the health of Minnesotans and the practice of medicine.  Our current priorities are:
  • Advancement of the Triple Aim: The MMA is leveraging its advocacy strength to improve the health of our communities, the affordability of care, and the quality, safety and experience of care for all Minnesotans.
  • Improved Health Equity: Minnesota has some of the largest health disparities for people of color. The MMA is dedicated to shining a light on this issue and closing that gap.
  • Professional Satisfaction: The MMA is working to alleviate the administrative burdens that are the most common drivers of physician burnout and professional dissatisfaction. The MMA champions the medical profession and celebrates the art and humanity of caring for patients. 
  • Physician Leadership in Health & Delivery System Change: The MMA brings ideas and solutions on behalf of medicine to the critical debates occurring in the state – whether at the Capitol, with state agencies, with health plans, or among community partners.
