SFMMS Supports Slate of 2021 State Bills



The San Francisco Marin Medical Society (SFMMS) has issued letters in support of a slate of state bills, advancing our positions on a diverse range of policy issues that affect the health and wellbeing of communities in San Francisco and Marin counties. These include overdose prevention, housing security, food security, transparency in the management of skilled nursing facilities, traffic calming measures to reduce pedestrian injuries and deaths, and ensuring private detention facilities adhere to public health orders.

SFMMS’ positions on bills are determined by the SFMMS Executive Committee of the Board of Directors.

In 2021, SFMMS is supporting the following bills:
