All Kennebec and Somerset County physicians and their guests are cordially invited to join MMA officers and executive staff at a Listening Session at Mainely Brews Restaurant & Brewhouse, 1 Post Office Square, in Waterville, Maine.

Stop by for an appetizer and beverage on us and share with us your thoughts and opinions.
