Family Doctor of the Day

What is FDOD?
KAFP organizes for a family physician to be present at the statehouse each day legislation is in session.  KAFP relies on its trusted membership to volunteer to serve as FDOD.  Volunteers assist legislators and their staff with health needs that may arise throughout the day from checking blood pressure to distributing ibuprofen to examining sore throats; mainly minor health needs with a few more serious complaints during the year. Family physicians with a Kansas license are eligible to serve as FDOD, this includes residents. The legislators are grateful for this program and it definitely puts family medicine in a favorable light! 

How to Volunteer
Available dates to volunteer are outlined on the calendars below.  Volunteer shifts are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Submit the online form to alert KAFP of your desired volunteer dates.

Volunteers will receive reminder emails in advance of their scheduled volunteer day(s). Included in that email will be day-of instructions regarding parking, where to go, and what to expect for your day of service.

If you have questions about the FDOD program contact Michelle Corkins: mcorkins@kafponline.org or 316-721-9005

CANCELLATION POLICY
If you are listed on the below calendars as the FDOD for a date that you are unable to maintain, please notify Michelle Corkins ASAP so that a replacement may be arranged.
