LEAWOOD, Kan. – Two societies of publishing professionals recently recognized Family Practice Management, a peer-reviewed journal of the American Academy of Family Physicians, with awards for editorial excellence.

“These awards are a testament to the value our editorial team and subject matter experts bring to Family Practice Management's extensive audience of physicians and medical practice staff,” said Stephanie Hanaway, publisher and director of the American Academy of Family Physicians’ Journal Media Division. “We are honored to be among this year's distinguished award recipients.”

FPM's mission is to give family physicians and others in primary care the tools and information they need to build rewarding practices and improve patient care.

Association Media & Publishing’s EXCEL competition recognizes the best in nonprofit digital and print publishing, design, marketing, advertising, and communication. The American Society of Healthcare Publication Editors’ annual awards competition recognizes editorial excellence and achievement in the field of health care publishing.

Founded in 1947, the American Academy of Family Physicians represents 129,000 physicians and medical students nationwide, and it is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care.

Family physicians conduct approximately one in five of the total medical office visits in the United States per year – more than any other specialty. Family physicians provide comprehensive, evidence-based, and cost-effective care dedicated to improving the health of patients, families and communities. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing and personal patient-physician relationship where the family physician serves as the hub of each patient’s integrated care team. More Americans depend on family physicians than on any other medical specialty.
