Celebrating National Doctors' Day - Sharing is Caring Campaign

March 25, 2020

The Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP) recently released the "Sharing is Caring" campaign designed to highlight success stories and uplift family physicians during this historic health crisis.  Despite the multitude of challenges COVID-19 has generated, Florida's Family Physicians have answered the call by unselfishly caring not only for those infected with the virus but by working tirelessly to maintain the health, safety, and wellbeing for those not.  Simply put, you remain the backbone of Florida's healthcare system.

The FAFP is launching a new COVID-19 Resources website CLICK HERE to keep members up to date with the most current information available.  The FAFP Homepage will include the latest breaking news relevant to family physicians as well as a link to the resources page.  Members are strongly encouraged to submit questions and concerns facing you and your practice in addressing COVID-19 to jmillson@fafp.org so feedback and support can be provided as available.  FAFP will repurpose any such responses to the membership to ensure useful information is being shared and clearly communicated.  Keep up the great work during these challenging times!

Don't Miss This Month's Spotlight

February 26, 2020

My 26 years in practice includes several years on Active Duty with the U.S. Navy at the Naval Hospital, Okinawa, Japan. My next adventure was part of a multispecialty group practicing in the near inner city of the Westside of Cleveland, Ohio. This group was part of the Cleveland Clinic Health System. When the group dissolved, in mid-2001, we took the bold step of moving to Central Florida and built a solo private practice from ground zero.
