Now more than ever, LACMA is actively seeking ways to meet the needs of its members. Determining those needs is an ongoing effort that entails a great deal of engagement with the community. We’ve developed our Roadmap Programs to expand the member services LACMA offers and address social issues and community needs. In other words, we’re listening to you.

LACMA Cares is one response to what we’ve heard. We’ve set up this program to help active and retired physicians who are in need.

What does LACMA Cares stand for?

  1. Community (of physicians and beyond)
  2. Activism to change perception and make a difference in people’s lives
  3. Resources to enact change and provide assistance
  4. Education to empower, inspire and motivate behavior
  5. Service to members – retired, sick, isolated, economically impacted

Our first LACMA Cares initiative came out of conversation with doctors at St. John’s Health Center about retired doctors who are limited in their ability to get out and around. We’ve teamed up with Uber to help with rides to hospital board and district meetings. It’s a small way to ensure that retired doctors who have given so much to our community have the chance to stay engaged in a meaningful way.

Whenever possible, we’ll reach out to our sponsors, committees and Roadmap partners to keep extending support and community. If you see a need in your physician community or know a doctor facing a difficult situation, please let us know and we’ll do our best to help.
