Greetings Long Term Care Providers!

ALMDA, Alabama’s state chapter affiliate of AMDA – The Society for Post-Acute and Long Term Care Medicine, welcomes your involvement as we strive to provide the best medical care and compassionate service in one of the most challenging medical environments – our state’s long-term care facilities. Membership in ALMDA and AMDA provides you with many benefits including free webinars, national advocacy and national networking, clinical practice guidelines and unique education on topics tailored to your practice setting.
You can be a member of either or both organizations but we encourage you to do both to maximize your educational opportunities and professional interactions. The benefits from interacting and learning from other long term providers is immeasurable.
ALMDA offers two educational events each year to help you learn more about surviving and thriving in long-term care. In 2018 our Mid-Winter Conference will be in Birmingham on January 27, and our Annual Conference is set for July 26-29 in Destin, Fla. Learn more about our conferences in the events section of ALMDA’s website. We are appreciative or our good relationship with the Alabama Nursing Home Association and their commitment to supporting both of our annual meetings and we value the work we do together through the Advisory Committee, which meets in conjunction with our meetings.
ALMDA provides several membership categories to encourage participation from providers at all levels of patient care. 2018 Membership and Conference Registration forms are available on our website at www.almda.org/page/almda-membership.
If you have any questions about a membership category do not hesitate to contact our executive director, Jennifer Hayes, at jhayes@alamedical.org.
Join us as we strive to advance the care in our long-term care facilities. We need you and we believe you need us to make a difference in the lives of our patients!
