SFMMS Board of Directors Approves 2021-2022 Strategic Priorities

Throughout 2020, SFMMS conducted an exercise to ensure it continues to deliver exceptional value to physicians throughout, and after, the COVID-19 pandemic. Members were surveyed to determine their needs, beliefs, values, and priorities. A ‘SWOT’ analysis was conducted to determine the organization’s strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. And a Governance Working group assessed the organization’s adherence to best practices for nonprofits.

Drawing from each of these inputs, the SFMMS Board of Directors approved nine strategic priorities in March 2021. With an emphasis on SMART goals - specific, measurable, attainable, relevant, and time-bound - these priorities will direct the work of SFMMS staff and position the profession to thrive as we overcome the COVID-19 pandemic.

1.Develop criteria to view all policy issues through the lens of promoting health equity.

2.Identify opportunities to co-sponsor public health legislation with one or more Supervisors in SF and Marin and/or to lead a novel initiative to reduce health disparities
