Established in 1973, the AAFP's Thomas W. Johnson Award is designed to recognize persons who, in the opinion of the AAFP Board of Directors, have made outstanding contributions to education for family medicine in undergraduate, graduate and continuing education spheres.
The award was named in honor of Thomas W. Johnson, MD, a long-time member of the Academy, who actively served the Tennessee Academy of Family Physicians and the national AAFP before joining the Academy staff in 1969. From 1971 until 1973, Dr. Johnson served as the director of the Division of Education.
