Funding Fight for Primary Care Training Programs Focus of AAFP Action Alert
By News Staff
"The evidence is very clear," says the letter. "Family physicians offer the most cost-effective care, and it would make sense for our country to continue to support this cost-effectiveness."
This current Action Alert comes only a few months after the AAFP sent a similar Action Alert to student members, urging them to contact their senators in support of funding increases for Title VII health professions programs during the 2013 fiscal year.
In the current Action Alert, Smith and Johnson say, "primary care needs our help. The current funding levels for the primary care training funds are not enough. Without a substantial increase in funding, primary care students and residents may not be able to receive the proper training to serve our communities."
