January 26, 2016—The Society of Teachers of Family Medicine has awarded scholarships for five new faculty members to attend the Family Medicine Congressional Conference. Scholarship recipients were chosen based on their potential to be exceptional advocates and advocacy leaders within STFM and the broader academic family medicine community. The recipients are:
  • David Bauman, PsyD, Central Washington FMR, Yakima, WA
  • Heather Bleacher, MD, University of Colorado FMR, Denver, CO
  • Monique George, MD,  Kaiser Permanente Woodland Hills FMR, Woodland Hills, CA
  • Fabiana Kotovicz, MD, Aurora FMR, Milwaukee, WI
  • Carrie Pierce, MD, Mount Sinai School of Medicine

This is the fourth year of the scholarship program. These scholarships cover the cost of attendance, travel, and meals for each recipient. Recipients will join conference attendees in learning about the legislative process, current priorities for family medicine, and how they can take action and interact with legislators and health care leaders. Each recipient will also be connected to a mentor who will guide them as they prepare for the conference. 

The Family Medicine Congressional Conference will take place April 18-19, 2016 in Washington, DC. For more information about the conference, visit
