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.

ABFM Board Certification
The American Board of Family Medicine’s new Self-Directed Performance Improvement Project pathway allows practices to report individually customized improvement projects specific to their practice environment, regardless of the scope of care delivered. The benefit of this pathway is that it can be custom tailored to fit any practice type.
