"I was introduced to the Southern Medical Association (SMA) a number of years ago through my husband, whose practice I manage. A long time member, he currently serves as Southern Medical Association's Alabama Councilor. Having attended several SMA meetings, I have observed the genuine commitment they have to their vision, mission and membership. Having participated in continuing educational programs offered, I have benefited from their dedication to improve patient care - AND having access to their extended knowledge (IT in particular) and resources, our practice benefited from the implementation of our current website.
Thank you Southern Medical Association for expertly serving the professional medical community!"

"Our website has been hosted and maintained by SMA for over two years.  It was incredibly easy to develop because of the dedicated support. Whenever I need to make changes or get advice, I have access to a full time experienced staff member. This is a huge benefit from SMA and frankly one of the main reasons I retain my membership."
