FMCC Conference Highlights
View photos and video of family physicians advocating for family medicine and for the patients they serve.
Sponsored by AAFP and the Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM), FMCC educates participants on family medicine's legislative priority issues, trains attendees on how to lobby on Capitol Hill, and allows participants to put these skills to use with federal legislators and their staff. Advocacy is a high priority of AAFP and the CAFM organizations; every family physician and educator can learn how to be effective in Washington and at home.
