Advocacy Day offers a chance to meet with legislative leaders, to meet with your specialty society peers, and to hear from KMS leadership about the upcoming legislative session. While some specialty societies may also hold events later in the year, Advocacy Day is the one event of the year for all Kansas physicians.
