American Academy of Family Physicians Promotes Dan Gowan to Associate Publisher/Director of Advertising Sales
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, December 11, 2006
American Academy of Family Physicians
(800) 274-2237 Ext. 5222
A 17-year AAFP veteran, Gowan will oversee the advertising efforts for the AAFP’s award-winning medical journals, including American Family Physician, a semi-monthly peer-reviewed clinical journal that reaches more than 180,000 physicians; and Family Practice Management, a practice management journal dedicated to helping family physicians adapt their practices to the changing health care environment.
In addition to his advertising responsibilities, Gowan also will work directly with the publisher to execute strategic publishing and marketing plans for the Academy’s journals and other AAFP publishing initiatives.
“Dan is a tremendous asset to this organization,” said Joetta Melton, director of the AAFP’s publications division and publisher of American Family Physician, Family Practice Management and Annals of Family Medicine. “He has a proven track record and extensive knowledge of the medical publishing industry, and we are confident he will be instrumental in continuing to grow the revenue and market share for the journals.”
For the past decade, Gowan served as national sales manager for American Family Physician, more than doubling the journal’s advertising market share. Prior to that, he was associate sales manager for the organization’s publishing division. Gowan is based in the AAFP’s advertising sales office in Hasbrouck Heights, N.J.
Gowan graduated cum laude with a bachelor of arts degree in psychology from College of Santa Fe, N.M. He also earned a master’s degree in business administration with a concentration in marketing from Fordham University, N.Y., graduating with honors.

Founded in 1947, the AAFP represents 110,600 physicians and medical students nationwide. It is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care.
Approximately one in four of all office visits are made to family physicians. That is 240 million office visits each year — nearly 87 million more than the next largest medical specialty. Today, family physicians provide more care for America’s underserved and rural populations than any other medical specialty. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care.
