The purpose of the Louisiana Academy of Family Physicians Foundation is to establish and administer programs that strengthen and enhance family and community medicine. The LAFP Foundation encourages medical students to pursue the specialty of Family Medicine, provide continuing education to family physicians throughout their careers, and organize free community health fairs and community wellness checks throughout Louisiana. Our support and fundraising events help to improve patient care and better the health of our community. Additionally, the LAFP also administers a youth anti-tobacco program called Tar Wars.
In an effort to help raise funds for these initiatives, the LAFP Foundation hosts a raffle at the LAFP Annual Assembly & Exhibition every year. The 2017 raffle was a HUGE success bringing in over $16,000. stay tuned for the 2018 raffle details!
