Get Involved in the 2020 Legislative Session
The Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians is asking its members to sign up to be "Family Physician of the Day" at the capitol during the 2020 Legislative Session. This program will enable the LAFP to build an effective relationship with our senators and representatives; a relationship that should be maintained if our views and suggestions concerning health care are to be heard.
