Nominate a Colleague Today

To my GAFP Colleagues:

We are all busy.  But I am asking that you take less than 10 minutes to think about honoring a fellow Georgia family physician.  Please help me and the rest of your Georgia family physicians in recognizing our friends for their exemplary service to the profession of family medicine and contributions to our State, by nominating someone for one of the following awards:

GAFP Awards

Deadline To Submit Nominations

Family Medicine Community And Volunteer Services Award May 5, 2017
Georgia Family Physician of The Year May 5, 2017
Family Medicine Educator of The Year May 5, 2017

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 2017 GAFP Annual Meeting in October.

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  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 Alesa McArthur of the GAFP at 1-800-392-3841 or
