    The Vital Role of Primary Care

    Family physicians are ideally positioned to spearhead the nation's public health efforts. As policymakers seek public health protections and improvements, the Academy engages with legislators and regulators at all levels to provide critical frontline data and perspective on a range of crucial issues.

    Why We Fight

    No specialty treats a broader range of conditions than family physicians, and none offers similarly dynamic longitudinal care to so many Americans. That's why the Academy is at the vanguard of the nation’s public health effort, amplifying the voice of primary care at the policymaking table.
