National Primary Care Week (NPCW)(www.amsa.org) is an annual event sponsored by the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). NPCW aims to connect health care professionals across the country and call attention to the importance of primary care in the health care system. The theme for NPCW 2014 is "We Are Not Yet Equal: Primary Care Advocacy for Underserved and Marginalized Communities."
This week is observed on medical school campuses through programming and opportunities for medical students and other health trainees to learn about, experience, and spread awareness of primary care’s pivotal role in the U.S. health care system.
Students are encouraged to participate and take advantage of opportunities to network and improve the understanding of primary care and its impact on communities. Student interest groups, including Family Medicine Interest Groups (FMIGs), should take a lead role in providing opportunities for students on their campus in observation of NPCW. The AAFP, which facilitates the FMIG Network, is a NPCW supporting partner.
Please note: the webinar takes a full hour and requires Java.
