7 Easy Ways to be a Champion of Organized Medicine

  1. USE your SFMMS pen. You are an ambassador for SFMMS and organized medicine wherever you go. Use your pen to strike up conversations with your patients, students, and fellow physicians about key health issues. Pick up your SFMMS pen—made from 100% recycled materials—at a SFMMS event or contact SFMMS.
  2. RECRUIT a medical student, resident, or colleague to join SFMMS. Speak with your peers about your positive experiences as a SFMMS member and encourage them to lend support to strengthen the voice of San Francisco and Marin physicians. Invite a colleague to an upcoming SFMMS networking mixer or our annual Legislative Advocacy Day.
  3. VOLUNTEER to serve on a committee, coordinate an event, or represent your peers at the CMA House of Delegates. 
  4. CONTRIBUTE to the SFMMS social media network. Join the SFMMS online community (Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter), comment on our blog, bookmark and share a SFMMS eNews article with colleagues, or post upcoming events and information pertinent to the San Francisco and Marin medical communities through the SFMMS Facebook page or LinkedIn.
  5. ADD to the SFMMS knowledge base. Submit an article for the San Francisco Marin Medicine journal, become a reviewer of SFMMS publications, consider contributing to the SFMMS blog, or comment on others’ health blogs. 
  6. NOMINATE a colleague or yourself to be a SFMMS featured member of the month. Help SFMMS identify and recognize physician champions by contacting SFMMS.
  7. DONATE to the SFMMS PAC. Invest in the future of medicine by making a contribution to enable SFMMS to support candidates and legislators who share our philosophy and vision of the future of health care and medical practice.

I am a SFMS member because I believe—when I joined SFMS as a new doctor 25 years ago, and still believe now—that physicians need the advocacy of organized medicine to represent them and their patients with insurance companies, legislators, and public policy. The SFMS has often led the way with health initiatives that benefit our patients and our profession.
