What Others Are Saying About FMCC
“I’d personally encourage each and every AAFP member to become involved in the political process. Their future depends on it, and one way to definitively do this, is to participate in the FMCC program.”
– Joseph A. Lieberman III, MD, MPH
“FMCC exposed me to a paramount side of patient care—advocacy. I was immediately impressed by the diversity of family physicians, residents, and students who attended FMCC. It was powerful to be in the presence of over two hundred physicians who not only dedicate their lives to caring for patients, families, and communities, but also make advocating for them a priority. In summary, Congressional Conference was inspiring.”
– Marissa Black, Tulane MD/MPH Candidate 2013
