MMA Presentation on Healthcare Issues Considered by 128th Legislature Now Available

During the two sessions of the 128th Legislature, the Maine Medical Association advocacy team monitored well over 300 pieces of legislation involving some aspect of healthcare. With the session now nearly concluded, MMA attorneys are available to present a one hour CME talk on the new laws of which physicians need to be aware.

 

This is a one-hour, in-person presentation that will cover all bills that have become law related to health care over the last two years. Any last minute work the Legislature does this week will be added, so that a complete review will be available.

Medical practices, medical staffs or specialty societies interested in the presentation should contact MMA EVP Gordon Smith, Esq. via e-mail to gsmth@mainemed.com.
