The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) is pleased to have your participation in its Adolescent Immunizations Office Champions Project! Twenty family medicine practices are involved in this project and we are excited to work with all of you to increase adolescent immunization rates. The intent of the project is to provide tools and effective strategies for developing a culture that promotes the importance of adolescent immunizations in your practice setting. Our objective is that each practice will show an increase in adolescent immunizations of at least 10% from their baseline assessment at the conclusion of the project.
The project will utilize a multi-faceted educational approach which consists of three elements:

The project will focus on the following key areas:
The Adolescent Immunization Office Champions Project teams must agree to:
