Family Medicine Advocacy

The Georgia Academy of Family Physicians’ (GAFP) advocacy work is an ongoing crusade to protect and defend the specialty of family medicine and its role in the health and wellbeing of Georgia citizens.   The GAFP is a watchdog of state and local government legislation and an expert on the ever-changing federally-mandated healthcare landscape.

Helmed by the Legislative Committee, GAFP’s advocacy efforts aim to revitalize and rescue family medicine from unfair reimbursements, unexpected reforms and unresolved challenges affecting care delivery.

Patients’ access to care is hanging in the balance.  Lost in this quagmire called healthcare reform, family medicine needs to regain its strength as the glue to preventive patient care.  If we are free to practice without constraints, we are free to provide patient care that ultimately saves the American people billions of dollars and countless lives.
