At the AMA Annual Meeting, the Minority Affairs Section (MAS) submitted three resolutions to the House of Delegates.
The AMA-MAS discussed a variety of issues that impact minority physicians and patients and submitted resolutions on the following topics:
- Strategies to increase diabetes prevention.
- Physicians and members in training as examples for their patients to promote wellness and healthy lifestyles.
- Strong opposition to cuts in federal funding for the Indian Health Service.
A summary report of AMA-MAS resolutions will be available soon.
