REMINDER: 2018 GAFP Awards- DEADLINE Friday, May 4th!

The deadline for award nominations is Friday, May 4th !  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:

GAFP Awards Deadline
Family Medicine Community and Volunteer Services Award May 4, 2018

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 2018 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  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 you to complete the application.
