Be the Voice for Your Fellow Physicians at the NSMA 2024 Annual Meeting

Strong leadership is needed, and it is needed NOW. Be the voice for your fellow physicians and the entire medical community, and shape the future of medicine in Southern Nevada, not just for yourself and your patients today but for generations to come. As a CCMS Delegate, you will have the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy.

Be a Part of the Solution. Be a CCMS Delegate.

The challenges facing healthcare are complex and ever-evolving, demanding a collective voice from dedicated physicians and healthcare professionals. As healthcare costs rise, access to care becomes more limited, and new technologies emerge, it’s crucial to have a seat at the table where decisions are made.

By becoming a CCMS Delegate, you can be that voice. You can be the one who advocates for your fellow physicians, your patients, and the future of healthcare in Clark County.

CCMS is entitled to the following delegate seats:

Delegates – 28 and Alternate Delegates – 28
