To My Colleagues:
It’s award nomination season and we’d like you to think about honoring a fellow Georgia family physician, or a deserving student or resident in your program. Please help me and the rest of your Georgia family physicians in recognizing exemplary service to the profession of family medicine and contributions to our State, by nominating someone for one of the following awards:
|Awards||Deadline To Submit Nominations|
|Family Medicine Resident of the Year||April 20, 2020 April 27, 2020|
|Keith Ellis Resident Scholarship||April 20, 2020 April 27, 2020|

The Membership Committee will nominate a slate to be approved by the Board of Directors, and presentation of the awards will be held during the 2020 GAFP Annual Meeting in November.
Many noteworthy colleagues may not have been considered for an award because they were not nominated. To download an electronic copy of the awards nomination package go to https://gafp.org/awards.asp. New this year is that the documents are now in a pdf format that you can fill out and email back to GAFP, which makes it easier for the Membership Committee to read your nomination.
The awards nomination package includes the awards and criteria, nomination forms and a list of past winners of each award.
If you have questions, please contact Angela Flanigan at 1-800-392-3841 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
