AAFP News, launched in April 2005 as AAFP News Now, is the official news publication of the American Academy of Family Physicians. The two previous AAFP news publications, FP Report and AAFP Direct, ceased publication the month before AAFP News Now launched. At that time, some news coverage from those discontinued publications was "migrated" to AAFP News Now online.
AAFP News is first and foremost an online publication, with news stories posted continually. Each week, members with email addresses on file with the AAFP receive an email with links to top AAFP News online stories.
Staff in the Academy's News Department, with assistance from the Design Department.
As the family physician's trusted, credible source for news about the specialty and the larger world of medicine, AAFP News delivers news and information to AAFP members that is accurate, timely, and consistent with the Academy's strategic mission areas and that demonstrates the value of membership. AAFP News content will fit within the broader context of AAFP communications and will invite dialogue to stimulate members' engagement with their Academy.
