Exhibitor & Supporter Opportunities

The Kansas Academy of Family Physicians (KAFP) and Colorado Academy of Family Physicians (CAFP) are thrilled to host the Mid to West Rural Health Equity Summit this fall.

Why Rural Health?

Rural family physicians provide patient care in underserved communities with limited resources, aide and facilities.  KAFP and CAFP strive to support these physicians by catering a CME conference just for them that addresses the needs and challenges unique to rural practice; such as rural physician recruitment and retention, collaborative care teams, telehealth, and more.  View the full schedule.
