AAFP Award for Distinguished and Meritorious Service to Family Medicine

This award combines the Award of Merit (*1975; revised 1994), Distinguished Service Award (*2003), Executive Service Award (*unknown), and Outstanding Service Award (*1993) to recognize members, nonmembers, chapter executives with 25-year service, and entities for long-time dedication to advancing, contributing, and supporting to the AAFP and the specialty of family medicine. It is intended to recognize long-time dedication, rather than through a single, significant contribution and effective leadership within their chapter or nationally in furthering the development of family medicine. This award can be presented to chapter staff, national staff, and vendors/suppliers.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Becky Gardner at (800) 274-2237, ext. 6349, or bgardner@aafp.org.    

*This award can be presented to more than one individual in a year and is not limited to being presented at one particular venue, such as the Annual Chapter Leader Forum, AAFP Foundation Recognition Dinner, chapter meetings.
