The NYSAFP Foundation and the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) Foundation are partners in an ongoing effort to promote and enhance Family Practice. We ask you to join us in supporting the NYSAFP Foundation and the AAFP Foundation in the important work they do on your behalf.
The AAFP Foundation is proud to serve the nationwide and international interests of Academy members through research, education, and charitable activities. The AAFP Foundation also assists chapter foundations with resources that enhance core programs. Your support of both Foundations is essential to make a healthy impact at the state level and for the specialty at large.
Some of the programs supported by the Foundations are:
- preceptorships with Family Physicians for medical students
- research by Family Physicians through the Practice Based Research Network Research Stimulation Grant Program
- research externships and research grant awards programs
- the Health Education Program, which produces a database of peer-reviewed patient education materials
- scholarships for 4th year medical students in NY who go on to residency training in family practice in NY
- the Dr. George Hart Fund which was created in 2012 to commemorate the leadership of George Hart, MD, who served as NYSAFP president, by supporting the participation of resident and student members of the Academy in the annual Winter Weekend which has been held in Lake Placid, NY for more than 35 years
