Doctor of the Day

Participate in the process as a “Doctor of the Day” at the Maine legislature. In addition to familiarizing yourself with Maine’s legislative process and meeting your legislators, you may have your children serve as “Honorary Pages” during your visit. This is a great  opportunity to  meet  your  legislators and   increase  visibility of  family medicine.

Physicians’ Day at the Legislature is a bi-annual event. Questions can be addressed to Dianna Poulin at 207-480-4194 or dpoulin@mainemed.com. This has  been on hold due to  Covid  pandemic. 

MMA Legislative Committee. The MMA Legislative Committee holds weekly conference call during the legislative session to review and finalize the MMA’s position on bills printed that week, to hear the views of specialty societies on the new bills or their concerns about any health policy issues, and to discuss the highlights of legislative action that week. For more information or to join the calls, please contact Dan Morin, Director of Governmental Affairs and Communications at dmorin@mainemed.com or 207-480-4199.

MAFP Board members participate on every call.
