Association Building Task Force to Address Health Care Manpower Shortage

Association Building Task Force to Address Health Care Manpower Shortage

In response to a resolution passed by the House of Delegates during the 2018 Annual Meeting in Montgomery in April, the Board of Censors is working to build a task force to develop and restore adequate health care manpower in all geographic areas in order to provide quality local health care for all Alabama citizens.

The resolution, submitted by the Pickens County Medical Society, stands as a reminder that Alabama ranks in the last five of 50 states in health status categories, and while primary care medicine is effective in raising health status, supporting hospitals and improving the economic status of disadvantaged communities, the state’s aging population is causing an escalation in need for primary care physicians.

The Association is now seeking physicians who would like to volunteer to serve on this task force. If you are interested and would like more information, please email Executive Director Mark Jackson at mjackson@alamedical.org.
