How to Make an Impact

The AAFP helps our members reach beyond your office by advocating for family medicine on both a national and international level. We give you the tools and opportunties to make your voice matter to you and your peers.

Legislative support

The AAFP is proud to advocate on behalf of family physicians, but also wants to empower you to become actively involved in the fight for family medicine. Take the first step to lending your voice to key issues as either a key contact or member of the Family Physician Advocacy Network.  

Global health work

The AAFP offers information and resources to help you explore and prepare for work in the field of global health. We'll help you figure out where to begin with our global opportunities database and international rotations directory. Or, connect with others passionate about international family medicine by attending the Family Medicine Global Health Workshop.
