Family Medicine Congressional Conference

Tuesday, May 12 - Wednesday, May 13, 2015
Renaissance Washington, DC, Downtown Hotel
Washington, DC

Make an impact in our nation's capital at the 2015 Family Medicine Congressional Conference. Converge with other family medicine advocates from across the country to learn more about issues at the federal level, as well as what you can do to help family medicine's legislative priorities. The first day will provide an opportunity to hear from a variety of experts. Put what you learn into practice on the second day by meeting with your legislators on Capitol Hill.

Leave the conference with tools that will help you continue advocating on behalf of family medicine.

“I’d personally encourage each and every AAFP member to become involved in the political process. Their future depends on it, and one way to definitively do this, is to participate in the FMCC program.”

— Joseph A. Lieberman III, MD, MPH

Sponsored by AAFP and the Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM), FMCC educates participants on family medicine’s legislative priority issues, trains attendees on how to lobby on Capitol Hill, and allows participants to put these skills to use with federal legislators and their staff. Advocacy is a high priority of AAFP and the CAFM organizations. Every family physician and educator can learn how to be effective in Washington and at home.
