They will present their poster and receive recognition at the 2017 STFM Conference on Medical Student Education, February 9-12, 2017 in Anaheim, CA.

Each scholar will receive a $1,000 ($500 from STFM and $500 from the scholar's family medicine department), an STFM membership, and a complimentary registration to attend the STFM Conference on Medical Student Education. The target school student—a student at a school without a family medicine department—will receive a $1,000, ($500 provided by STFM and an additional $500 which is provided by the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP).

The Medical Student Education Committee would like to thank the 2016 Conference on Medical Student Education attendees who generously donated $3,440 to the STFM Foundation to support this program and the AAFP for its support of the target school scholar.
