FAFP President's Message - Responding to the Criminalization of Medicine
"As family physicians, we have a responsibility to use clinical judgment and evidence to provide care in the best interest of our patients. Criminal penalties should be reserved for cases of intentional harm or criminal activity, rather than being tied to specific medical treatment."  CLICK HERE to read the full message.
Thank you - 2023 Spring Forum Attendees
Thank you to both in-person and virtual attendees of the 2023 Family Medicine Spring Forum.

We hope that the learning experience was enjoyable and worthwhile for you as it was for the FAFP leadership and staff.

As a reminder, please claim your CME credits by completing and submitting your evaluation no later than June 16, 2023. CME credits earned from the meeting will be reported to AAFP and CE Broker within 30 days, provided you have completed and successfully submitted the evaluation. Please do not report your credits to AAFP/CEBroker as this delays the process in proper reporting to the state. 

We look forward to seeing you again soon!

Thank you for Attending the FAFP Leadership Academy at the 2023 Spring Forum!
On Friday, April 14, the Leadership Academy attendees completed a 6-hour version of The Leadership Challenge Workshop, an evidence-based exploration of the 30 behaviors that describe exemplary leaders. The program is one of the most-used leadership models worldwide and is based on several years of study by leadership researchers Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner.

Capitol Update - Week 6
Former FAFP President, Dr. John Gross, started the week as Doctor of the Day along with resident Dr. Joseph Chen - sponsored by Representative Linda Chaney. On Wednesday, the USF Morton Plant Mease Family Medicine Residency Program was well represented by attending physicians Drs. Julia Jenkins, Kirstyn Thomas (res.), Kaitlyn Grayson (res.), and Michael Allison, with sponsors Representative Karen Gonzalez Pittman and Senator Ed Hooper. It was a strong showing for family medicine in the capitol building, a trend that will continue into next week with four FAFP board members traveling to Tallahassee next weekend.
