Family Medicine in the Community:
Volunteer to participate in our Saving Lives/Saving Money campaign. We have a PowerPoint presentation explaining the current problems with America’s health care system and why an emphasis on primary care is so important. We provide training sessions (it is very easy to do) and we willl set you up with a speaking opportunity convenient for you. This is our 5th year for this campaign and we have had overwhelmingly positive reviews. It turns out that people would rather hear about the health care system from a doctor than a politian or the media. Contact us for more information.
Every year, medical students and family physicians partner with the OAFP Foundation to provide the Tar Wars Tobacco Education Program by presenting about the hazards of tobacco to 5th grade students around the state. Contact us to join this year’s program.
ShareCenter helps members learn from each other:
- Which other practices use the same EMR system as you do?
- How are other family physicians preparing for Coordinated Care Organizations?
The answer to these and many other questions can be found on Share Center, a new on-line social networking tool for only OAFP members. Check it out today!
