The Alliance

Who We Are

The Cape Girardeau County Area Medical Society (CGCAMS) Alliance is comprised of spouses of physicians and dentists who are eligible for membership in the medical society. The CGCAMS Alliance works hard to promote healthy habits and lifestyles for the local community.


Current projects for the CGCAMS Alliance include the “Smoking is Not for Me” campaign and the BackPack for Friday’s program. The “Smoking is Not for Me” campaign is a writing and art contest for local middle school students showing why they choose not to smoke. The top three submissions in each category: essay, poem, and artwork are published in the Spring Issue of the Cape Medical Journal.

The BackPack for Friday program is run through the local foodbank and provides a backpack full of food for local students that may not otherwise have access to food over the weekend. The CGCAMS Alliances dedication to children and their families through BackPack program has proven effective. We have consistently raised more each year allowing more children the chance to take home food. We will continue to raise awareness for this important cause.

We Have Fun

In addition to the CGCAMS Alliance’s work in the community, the Alliance is also a lot fun. From holiday socials to monthly meetings we find ourselves laughing in conversation.
