Family Doctor of the Day

Family Doctor of the Day (FDOD) is a volunteer program organized by the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians, in which KAFP provides for a family physician to be present at the Statehouse each day during the legislative 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.  Checking blood pressure, distributing ibuprofen, examining sore throats: the health issues are mainly minor health needs, with a few more serious ailments during the year. Family physicians with a Kansas license are eligible to serve as FDOD, including residents licensed in Kansas. The legislators are grateful for the program and it definitely puts family medicine in a favorable light!

How to Volunteer

Available dates to volunteer are outlined on the calendars below.  FDOD services are needed 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 at mcorkins@kafponline.org or 316-721-9005.
