Dear Maryland Physicians,

I wanted to share the latest information and resources for addressing the growing COVID-19 pandemic in Maryland. Please know that MedChi is here to support you through this.

  • The Maryland Department of Health has granted permission at MedChi's request for all physicians to participate in Dr. Howard Haft's update call on Wednesday, March 18, 5:00pm-5:30pm. Register here.

  • MedChi is working closely with DrFirst to help physicians access their Backline telemedicine platform. DrFirst is providing 30-day access at no charge for Maryland physicians; the platform is $300 per user after that.

  • Together with the Maryland Nurses Association and Rockpointe, MedChi is hosting a live CME webinar for clinicians in outpatient offices on Friday, March 20 at 1:00pm. The focus will be on handling symptomatic patients in ambulatory care settings. This content will also be available online after the event.

I encourage you to join MedChi to support our efforts as we support you. 
Please reach out today to Amity Aldrich at or visit to join.

Above all, thank you for all that you do as physicians and healers.
