LEAWOOD, Kan. – Two societies of publishing professionals recently recognized Family Practice Management, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Family Physicians, with awards for editorial excellence.

“These awards are a testament to the value our editorial team and subject matter experts bring to Family Practice Management's extensive audience of physicians and medical practice staff,” said Stephanie Hanaway, publisher and director of the American Academy of Family Physicians’ Journal Media Division. “We are honored to be among this year's distinguished award recipients.”

FPM's mission is to give family physicians and others in primary care the tools and information they need to build rewarding practices and improve patient care.

Association Media & Publishing’s EXCEL competition recognizes the best in nonprofit digital and print publishing, design, marketing, advertising, and communication. The American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors’ annual awards competition recognizes editorial excellence and achievement in the field of health care publishing.
