Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Susan Collins met with Andrew MacLean, and Dr. Robert Schlager, the CEO and immediate past president, respectively, of the Maine Medical Association (MMA).  Dr. Schlager is currently the Chief Medical Officer of Sebasticook Valley Hospital in Pittsfield.


“For more than 150 years, the Maine Medical Association has worked to support physicians throughout the state and promote the overall health and well-being of all Maine citizens,” said Senator Collins.  “I look forward to our continued efforts to ensure all Mainers have access to high-quality medicine and care including, those in rural parts of the state.”


Since its founding in Brunswick in 1853, MMA has advocated for physicians, their patients, and public health. The Association is led by its volunteer officers. The organization is one of fifty state medical societies that make up the American Medical Association.


Senator Collins is the Chairman of the Aging Committee and a member of the Health Committee.
