Welcome Health Care Professionals,
I want to personally invite you and all Catholic health care providers in the Kansas City area to join us in membership and at our events (First Saturday's, the White Mass, and The fall Bioethics Dinner).
Since its inception, the national CMA has had a very strong commitment to "upholding the principles of the Faith and advancing the profession of medicine."
Our local mission is based on a personalized approach to spirituality, bioethics and discipleship.
Please know that we are truly here to serve each of our area Catholic doctors and health care professionals. I hope you will join us during this very exciting time!

Formation Program for Catholic Doctors
First Saturdays for Physicians
"First Saturdays" is a grass roots initiative to help reconnect area Catholic doctors with Christ and His church. Under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit and through the intervention of Saints Cosmas and Damian, this collaboration of the School of Faith, the male branch of the Apostles of the Interior Life and the local guild of the Catholic Medical Association helps doctors reconnect by providing a combination of Mass, reconciliation, and a 30-45 minute catechesis led by our School of Faith Founder and
theologian, Michael Scherschligt.

The 2018 Fall Bioethics Event is set for November 3rd at St. James Academy. Stay tuned for further details to come.

REQUEST: Calling Medical Providers to Endorse Article on the Health Risks of Hormonal Contraceptives
In March, Archbishop Naumann asked his Medical Ethics Council to review information regarding the medical risks of contraception in preparation for the 50th anniversary of Humanae Vitae this July 25th.
Medical and biological science members of the council reviewed the literature. We compared all articles from the last 5 years of the Linacre Quarterly. We solicited articles from Drs. Pritchett and Heap. We reviewed the most recent epidemiologic studies from Europe and combed through an additional 2” stack of journal articles on contraception. To assure objectivity, we studied the most recent editions of texts by the foremost authorities on contraception and gynecologic endocrinology, Hatcher et al.’s Contraceptive Technology and Fritz and Speroff’s Clinical Gynecologic Endocrinology and Infertility.
The result is the Report to Supportive Physicians - Contraception, which you can read at the bottom of this page. This document was further reviewed by the board of the Ss. Cosmas and Damian Guild of the Catholic Medical Association of Kansas City. The Archbishop wants to publish a simpler version of this information in The Leaven, signed by providers, by 7/14. We understand he wants it signed by as many providers as possible. We ask you to review that article here, or directly below.
If you are willing to endorse the article and have your name attached, please click the button below to let us know. Or, email our CMA Administrative Director, Tyler Hambley, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then send you a follow up email with instructions for including your signature.
