Welcome

The Mississippi Medical Directors Association's Board of Directors welcomes you to the launch of the MSMDA website. 

The aim of this web site is to keep current and potential members up-to-date on pertinent chapter activities and on local and national issues in Long Term Care.  Your input and involvement is welcome.  This site will post original materials along with links to existing resources, tools,  articles and legislative information that we hope will help advance our mission of supporting and educating Mississippi providers of LTC patients.

Please join us by becoming an active member and assist us in making this organization strong and effective.  We need a strong chapter with united members to support our profession that is confronted with many challenges.  Together we can have an impact on improving the quality of care of the facilities we serve and the quality of life for the elders we serve.


Submit Content

MSMDA members can submit non-commercial long term care related items for possible future posting to this website.  Interested members can send an email to msmdawebsite@gmail.com.
