Physicians are advocates for patients every day. But to affect broad change, physicians will need to take advocacy from the exam room to the hearing room. 

How to Get Involved in Advocacy

The MMA has brought together many different tools and resources to help you become an effective advocate. 

Know the Issues

The first step to be an effective advocate is to know the issues. Thousands of bills are introduced in the Minnesota Legislature, and even more in the US Congress. 

 Visit our Legislative Action page for a look at our priorities. 

Influence the Debate

Be an advocate for your profession every year at Physicians' Day at the Capitol event.
