FAFP's June Member Spotlight - Remembering Dr. Daniel Van Durme
"Losing Dan truly is like losing a close family member. Our paths have crossed or been directly linked since we were both resident members of the FAFP. We served together on the Board of Directors of the FAFP and had overlapping responsibilities in the AAFP. Our children literally grew up together in the FAFP. When Dan was elected to the AAFP Board, I was appointed and then elected to the Delegate position he previously held. In that role, I had the honor of serving as his campaign manager three years later, when he ran for the office of President-elect." CLICK HERE to read more.
