Nominations for both awards will be accepted until April 2, according to AAFP Foundation Executive Director Craig Doane.

The Outstanding Program Award recognizes the exceptional philanthropic activities of AAFP chapters and chapter foundations around the country. Each year, the award is presented as part of the AAFP Foundation Annual Recognition Dinner held during the AAFP Scientific Assembly.

"The philanthropic program or project submitted can be either programming- or development-related," Doane said. "All applications are reviewed based on content, presentation, creativity, measurable outcomes and relationship of the project to the mission of the AAFP Foundation."

The Philanthropist of the Year Award identifies individuals or couples who exemplify the spirit of philanthropy through their extraordinary support of family medicine, said Doane, and "is given annually to someone who leads by example in the giving of their time and financial resources."
