The IAFP Needs You!

The Indiana Academy of Family Physicians and the Indiana State Medical Association will once again sponsor the Physician of the Day program at the 2011 General Assembly. Your assistance is needed! In the current fast-changing health care climate, it is most important that family medicine make an impression on our legislators. This important program allows you to observe the legislative process firsthand and to meet with your area representatives.

The Physician of the Day program is one in which IAFP members volunteer to spend one or more days at the Statehouse during the legislative session. The purpose of the Physician of the Day Program is to provide episodic primary care services, as a convenience, for the governor, legislators and their staffs during the time the state legislature is in session. The Physician of the Day will be introduced at the beginning of the day. Your day at the Statehouse will be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

We are in the process of scheduling physician volunteers for the months of February and April. The program operates Mondays through Thursdays only.

If you are interested in serving as the Physician of the Day, please e-mail Chris Barry (cbarry@in-afp.org), or call the IAFP office at 888.422.4237 (toll-free, in-state only) or 317.237.4237 to schedule your Physician of the Day shift. THANK YOU!
