AIM-HI will be a readily available resource to member physicians providing rapid access to new and existing materials and information with continuing medial education (CME) and other support. It will contain brief interventions for use in physicians' offices and community presentations, which can be easily adapted to a variety of audiences of all ages, genders and cultures. This program is designed for family physicians and others addressing the key areas of nutrition, exercise, well-being, community and family.
The family physician is uniquely positioned throughout the United States in urban, suburban and rural areas and can function at the center of the initiative due to the acceptance and respect enjoyed within their own communities. Family physicians care for the entire family and can implement cross-generational, culturally diverse programs that appropriately fit in each community and practice.
This ten-year initiative was created with the following vision, mission and goals.
Vision: Promote "fitness" as a path to health for all members of the American family.
Mission: Improve the health of all Americans by implementing a multifaceted fitness program addressing physical activity, nutrition, and emotional well-being in the individual, family and community.
- Develop office-based and community-based interventions that will enable family physicians to teach patients and their families to become physically and emotionally fit and practice good nutrition.
- Family physicians will have an improved ability to positively affect the health of their patients throughout the lifespan as well as the health of their communities.
- The AAFP, and all funding partners, will become widely known in both public and medical arenas for their efforts to address health and wellness from a unique perspective.
- The AAFP will serve as a facilitator and coordinator for multiple efforts to increase the health and wellness of physicians, patients, their communities and the public.
