2023 Practice Makeover Program


LACMA's Medical Practice Makeover Initiative is more than a slogan. It’s a promise to small, independent medical practices that meet certain criteria, that help is on the way. In 2022, a total of 20 practices received $5,000 grants along with robust resources, PPE supplies and a practice assessment. The success of the program in its first year demonstrated the need to extend the Medical Practice Initiative into 2023. 


For 2023, a total of $50,000 will be awarded to practices, with 3 winners announced each quarter. New awardees will receive up to $5,000 and past winners who re-apply and win will receive $2,500.
