What is the Alliance?
The Alliance is a national, state, and local organization that represents the family of medicine in the United States. Through its many resources and accomplishments, most members find the true benefit is participating in an organization that can speak out on the issues affecting the family of medicine in communities nationwide.
The Missouri State Medical Association Alliance together with the American Medical Association Alliance and Missouri’s county Alliances form a cohesive group whose mission is to support each other and to improve the health of our communities.
Join Us at Fall Conference!
An outstanding group of health professionals will speak to the Alliance during the 2016 Fall Conference in the scenic Ozarks on Sept. 21-22. 2016.
This annual event will be held at the Hilton Conference Center and Branson Landing, a premier entertainment and shopping complex located on the banks of Lake Taneycomo. With more than 100 shops and restaurants nearby you will want to arrive early to have plenty of time for shopping. Go to www.bransonlanding.com for more information and directions to this great place.
The Alliance’s Fall Conference is a wonderful opportunity to hear timely reports on critical issues facing Alliance members this year. See page 7 for the agenda and registration form.
Registration opens with lunch at noon on Wednesday, Sept. 21 at the Hilton Conference Center. We’ll begin with a board meeting, a presentation from the Strategic Task Force, and then move to a presentation on Opioid and Marijuana Abuse and Addiction. An early dutch treat dinner at the White River Fish House will start at 5:00 p.m., with optional entertainment either at Mickey Gilley’s Theatre or Branson Landing shopping, followed by relaxing and socializing in the President’s suite (Jana Wolfe) later in the evening. On Thursday, we continue the conference with a board meeting at 8:00 a.m., followed by programming on Human Trafficking and Exploitation and Laughter is the Best Medicine. The Conference will then wrap up with a tasty lunch.
We hope to see you there but space is limited so you will want to make your reservations soon. The deadline for the hotel reservations and conference registration is Aug. 24. After that date, hotel availability cannot be guaranteed and the conference registration goes up $15. Rates for the hotel begin at $139, plus tax, per night for either double or single. See you there!
