The 150th Annual Session of the California Medical Association (CMA) House of Delegates (HOD) will tackle two major issues when it convenes October 23, 2021. Due to the ongoing public health emergency and the high levels of community transmission, the meeting will be held virtually again this year.
CMA physician delegates meet annually to establish broad policy on current major issues that have been determined to be the most important issues affecting members, the association and the practice of medicine.
The delegates will tackle two major issues this year.
- Racism and Other Barriers to Health Equity
- Corporatization of Health Care
To expand opportunities for member engagement, we will be holding a virtual Major Issues townhall so members can offer testimony on the Major Issues recommendations.
Our townhall will be Thursday, September 30 (6-8 p.m.). The time block will be divided up with one hour per issue.
- 6-7 p.m.: Racism and Other Barriers to Health Equity
- 7-8 p.m.: Corporatization of Health Care
Members can join and leave the meeting at any point. The townhall is open to all members, but advance registration is required.
If you cannot join the virtual townhall, please use the discussion forums. The first draft of the Major Issues and other actionable reports will be posted 30 days prior to the House of Delegates, on September 23, 2021, and will be open for testimony in the discussion forums through October 8, 2021.
