Events at MSA

MSA Community Outreach

At MSA, we are dedicated to improving the overall health and wellness of our community, alongside the many organizations that partner with MSA to help serve our neighbors. Our strong tradition of community outreach helps us to meet our core mission of improving patient outcomes. We participate in many community events throughout the year, including health fairs, career days, fundraisers, flu shot clinics, health screenings, memorial services, senior living and wellness events.

The MSA Events Calendar provides an excellent vehicle to help promote your special event with local partnering organizations and the healthcare community in general via our public website.
