There is a lot packed into the KAFP Advocacy section of the website. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with the many resources and information about how KAFP is advocating for family medicine! Let’s walk through each of the tabs under the Advocacy section.
Please read the 2018 Legislative Priorities. The Governmental Advocacy Committee develops priorities each year and the Board considers for adoption. These are of great importance in keeping the KAFP on priority issues throughout the legislative session.
The Family Doctor of the Day page provides an overview of the FDOD program, how to volunteer and a calendar of volunteers. There are still four open FDOD days left on the calendar, consider volunteering for a date while you’re there.
Visit the Advocacy Day page for the date & full schedule for this event each year.
