Every November as a part of the GAFP Annual Scientific Assembly, GAFP hosts a Student Workshop for medical students around the state. On November 16, 2014 during the 2014 GAFP Annual Scientific Assembly, students from around Georgia gathered for a “Day in the Life of a Family Doc” lunch panel and a suturing workshop led by GAFP members.
