Elected policymakers are ever changing. Our advocacy must be constant.
Kansas Medical Society’s Advocacy Day offers a unique opportunity to connect directly with your legislative leaders. You will join physicians from across the state, regardless of specialty to ask the hard questions that impact the house of medicine. Plan to meet with your specialty society, KMS leadership & your peers to inform lawmakers, guide decision-making and generate support for policies on critical issues that impact physicians, patients, and the health care environment for our great state of Kansas. Whether you view advocacy as a responsibility or an option, your community participation, leadership, and collective voices are essential to the house of medicine’s continued leadership in health care.

The Importance of Advocacy Day
A physician’s priority is their patients. The Kansas Medical Society mission is to ensure that patient care remains physician directed. KMS advocates for Kansas physicians and policies that promote physician-led care. Founded in 1859, KMS assumes the mantle of ensuring the practice of medicine remains in the hands of physicians and that all Kansans have access to high quality care.
KMS advocacy is steadfast in ensuring year-round that lawmakers are well-educated on the issues that affect the practice of medicine. The practice of medicine is significantly shaped by policy at the state level on issues such as tort reform, payor issues, and scope of practice.
We hope you’ll make plans to join us for this special event to see firsthand how we advocate on your behalf.
