Make an impact in our nation's capital at the Family Medicine Congressional Conference. Converge with other family medicine advocates from across the country to learn more about issues at the federal level, as well as what you can do to help family medicine's legislative priorities. The first day will provide an opportunity to hear from a variety of experts. Put what you learn into practice on the second day by meeting with your legislators on Capitol Hill.
Leave the conference with tools that will help you continue advocating on behalf of family medicine.

Sponsored by AAFP and the Council of Academic Family Medicine (CAFM), the Family Medicine Congressional Conference educates participants on family medicine's legislative priority issues, trains attendees on how to lobby on Capitol Hill, and allows participants to put these skills to use with federal legislators and their staff. Advocacy is a high priority of AAFP and the CAFM organizations; every family physician and educator can learn how to be effective in Washington and at home.
