Sign up to be Family Doc of the Day during the 2019 Legislative Session

The Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians is asking its members to sign up to be "Family Doctor of the Day" at the Louisiana State Capitol during the 2019 Legislative Session.

Students and Residents: The LAFP Needs YOU!
The LAFP values our resident and student members. We are one of the few professional membership organizations that actively recruits and involves our resident and student members to leadership roles. As a student and resident, you are the future of Family Medicine, and serving as a delegate ensures that issues important to you and your colleagues are communicated to the full membership of LAFP. It helps our active members connect with you early in your career and establish relationships that will last as you transition into your practice.
Come experience your membership to the fullest by serving in one of LAFP's delegate positions. For each delegate position, two resident positions and two student positions will be elected where one will serve as the delegate and the other as the alternate delegate.
