American Academy of Family Physicians Names New Publisher
Stephanie Hanaway to Direct Efforts of American Family Physician, America’s Leading Primary Care Journal
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Thursday, January 11, 2007
American Academy of Family Physicians
(800) 274-2237 Ext. 5222
A 22-year veteran of the business-to-business media industry, Hanaway directs all aspects of publication management, strategy and planning 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; Family Practice Management, a practice management journal dedicated to helping family physicians adapt their practices to the changing health care environment; and Annals of Family Medicine, a self-supported, peer-reviewed primary care research journal. Combined, the journals account for annual revenues of approximately $25 million.
As publisher, Hanaway oversees all departments related to advertising sales, marketing, circulation and production for the publications, and manages the budget process, contracts, licensing and other related business functions. Hanaway is based in the AAFP’s headquarters office in Leawood, Kan., and replaces Joetta Melton, who held the position since 1997.
“I’m confident that in addition to her extensive experience, Stephanie will bring strong leadership and new direction in a rapidly changing media environment,” AAFP’s Vice President for Publishing and Communications, Michael Springer, said of Hanaway’s hire.
Prior to joining the AAFP, Hanaway served for 20 years at Primedia Business, now Prism Business Media, at its Overland Park, Kan., office, including terms as magazine publisher, director of trade show operations, division marketing director and vice president. More recently, she served as director of event media sales for Ascend Media, also in Overland Park. She has also owned her own marketing services firm.
Hanaway is immediate past president of the Business Marketing Association of Kansas City and founded their Fountain Awards of Kansas City program, the first awards program in the metropolitan area to honor achievement in business-to-business marketing and advertising.
Hanaway received a bachelor of arts degree in radio, television and film from the University of Kansas, Lawrence.

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.
