Of all the stories that are included in the CMA weekly eNewsletter, CMA-authored ones are by far the most read.

Clearly, physicians value information from other physicians, and in particular their local colleagues.  

Will you help by sharing a story? The subject matter can be anything you want (clinical interests; policy issues that impact healthcare; hobbies in which you participate that give you some work/life balance.)  Some ideas are listed below as well as past examples from CMA physicians.

When you're ready to go, you can either send your story directly to us to share or contact us in advance to discuss.
