Partners in Family Medicine
We always say that cultivating student career choice in the specialty of family medicine “will take all of us,” and our Partner community is living proof. They come from all over Louisiana and include managed care plans, community leaders, health care facilities, and others who embody the spirit of generosity and the importance of building a thriving family medicine workforce for Louisiana.
Support from the following Partners in Family Medicine allows the LAFP Foundation to continue to expand the programs that support family physicians and the patients they serve.
About Partners in Family Medicine
Your company’s corporate partnership means that you support Foundation programs. The Foundation is the only charitable organization in Louisiana that exists to improve and increase access to quality health care by investing in the specialty of family medicine. Family physicians provide comprehensive, continuing care to all members of a family thus contributing substantially to a healthier quality of life and valuable health care cost containment measures. Your company’s support of the Foundation is vital to creating a healthier Louisiana for all citizens. The Foundation is a charitable, public foundation recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt organization. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by the law. The Foundation’s federal identification number is 58-1757802.
LAFP's community and corporate engagement opportunities are designed to facilitate connections that focus on building long-term relationships through cutting-edge education and targeted communications. Recognizing those who are making a commitment to family medicine in Louisiana and patients across the state is paramount to the success of this multifaceted partnership opportunity.
We want to be there for you by opening doors and building relationships so that when members find themselves in need of information, products or services, they only need to look as far as the Academy and our partners to support them.
