• The EveryONE Project

    An initiative to improve the health of all people.

    Results from our social determinants of health survey indicate that family physicians want to help address their patients' needs, but face many barriers in trying to offer the support they need. For example, 64 percent of family physicians feel they aren't properly staffed to address risk factors with patients.

    Transforming health care for everyone inspired The EveryONE Project by the AAFPThe initiative, which is part of the AAFP's Center for Diversity and Health Equity, offers education and resources to help you advocate for health equity, promote workforce diversity, and collaborate with other disciplines and organizations to reduce harmful health disparities.
