Physician Advocacy Network
In collaboration with MSSNY, MCMS has developed a robust Physician Advocacy Network! Whether you already have existing relationships with your state legislator OR have been looking for an opportunity to do more “hands-on” advocacy, MCMS wants to partner with you as Physician Advocacy Liaison.
The Physician Advocacy Network will be the compilation and collaboration of physicians within EACH legislative district. Dubbed “Physician Advocacy Liaisons” (PAL) you will lead the physician – legislative outreach for your assembly person or senator. This PAL network makes advocacy more personal and ongoing.
The advocacy of MCMS / MSSNY is the single biggest benefit of your membership. As you’ve seen this year there is a near constant attack on physicians in NY State by well-intentioned (but non-medical) legislators. If we are not at the table we are on the menu!

MSSNY's Grass Roots Action Center
With unprecedented challenges for medicine at the State Legislature and Congress, your participation in the legislative process has become an essential part of practicing medicine in New York State.
MSSNY’s Grassroots Action Center serves as your link to the latest legislative issues and suggested action to take on behalf of physicians.
You will find summaries of topical health care issues concerning physicians, with background information and model letters ready to be sent to your local legislators. Use this site to look up your federal and state representatives by zip code.
If medicine is your profession, then politics is your business!
