KMA gives physicians a voice in the Kentucky General Assembly; it represents all physicians and patients before legislators.
Through its advocacy efforts, KMA gives physicians a voice by:
- Presenting expert testimony to legislative committees;
- Providing analysis on the likely outcomes of key legislative proposals;
- Meeting personally with members of the General Assembly to discuss KMA’s positions; and
- Facilitating direct communication between KMA members and their legislators through the KMA Legislative Action Center.
Through traditional and social media, KMA keeps members up to date on issues important to physicians and patients. Follow KMA on Twitter and LinkedIn, like KMA on Facebook and check your inbox for the bimonthly e-newsletter, Kentucky Health eNews, and your mailbox for the print Communicator and For the Record: The Journal of the Kentucky Medical Association.
This free mobile application available to KMA members, allows doctors to communicate and share vital patient information without having to worry about HIPAA violations. To learn more, view the DocbookMD Orientation Guide.
