The mission of the LAFP Foundation is to strengthen and enhance family and community medicine in Louisiana. This mission is accomplished by the growing array of programs we pursue and execute.
Vision and Purpose:
The LAFP Foundation, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, was originally founded to provide scholarships to worthy medical students. As the specialty of family medicine grows, so does the vision of the Foundation. The purpose of the LAFP Foundation is to establish and administer programs that accomplish our mission through:
- The support of activities that encourage medical students to pursue family medicine as their intended specialty.
- The support of research activities in family medicine which ultimately may result improved patient care.
- The facilitation and enhancement of communication between family physicians and the community.
