Our programs are developed and supported by the members of our organization through their volunteerism, donations, and with additional support from local, state or national agencies, county alliances and medical societies, or other providers or suppliers. Our members are dedicated to serving the health and well-being of the medical family and their local communities throughout Florida. We do this through educational state-wide awareness programs, legislative action, and other health related initiatives and projects.
