Malcolm Porter

Public Policy/Political Affairs Consultant

Why CMA?
I believe that doctors' voices and the physician/patient relationship should be represented in policy debate. The practice of medicine for individual physicians and the provision of healthcare for our region are directly impacted by elected officials and the policy issues they decide.  Decisions are made by those who participate in our public process. Decisions should be not left solely to the perspectives of large institutional or corporate organizations. We all benefit from the patient/physician relationship being represented in the process.
