Missouri Dermatological Society Association

The Missouri Dermatological Society Association (MDSA) is the advocacy branch of the Missouri Dermatological Society, with a mission to advance, defend and monitor state legislative & regulatory issues impacting dermatology and the practice of medicine.

Throughout the year, MDSA engages in a variety of advocacy activities throughout Missouri and in the State Capitol. These efforts engage our general membership and are largely driven and coordinated by a legislative and advocacy subcommittee who works directly with our contract lobbyist.

Advocacy efforts are intended to maintain a presence in Missouri and local communities, advocate for our profession and raise awareness and education on the importance of dermatological care.
