GAFP Member Leads the Formation of the AAFP’s Obstetrics Member Interest Group!

GAFP member, Zita Magloire, MD outreached to GAFP and other AAFP members to secure the needed petitioners in forming a Member Interest Group on Obstetrics!  Dr. Magloire will serve as the Chair of the OB MIG community.  Congratulations Dr. Magloire and thank you for your leadership in this key area of family medicine and securing a format for mutual discussion from around the AAFP family of family medicine.

The Obstetric (OB) Member Interest Group was formed by physicians, residents and medical students who believe that this area of our practice needed more visibility within the AAFP community. The goals of this group are to increase the number of topics specifically related to maternity care in AAFP sponsored events and publications, as well as to develop resolutions to assist family physicians with credentialing for cesareans, vaginal deliveries and other obstetrical procedures that have been challenging for family physicians to obtain in many states. The group is dynamic and seeks input of family physicians from across the country to ensure their goals and objectives remain relevant in today’s changing health care climate.
