The Kansas City Medical Society advances the practice of medicine and works to improve the health of people throughout greater Kansas City. We advocate for physicians and medicine and promote public health for the Kansas City region. For physicians, we provide educational programs, offer networking opportunities and more. The Medical Society coordinates the delivery of over $8 million in donated charitable care annually to uninsured individuals through the Kansas City Medical Society Foundation. We serve Jackson County, Clay County and Platte County in Missouri, and Johnson County and Wyandotte County in Kansas.
