STFM is in the midst of an initiative to position academic family medicine in health systems. We are looking for stories/case studies that showcase the impact family medicine leaders (at all levels) had/are having on health systems during COVID. We're especially interested in stories where leadership went beyond family medicine departments and potentially led to health systems' leaders placing a higher value on or changing their thinking about family medicine. The goals are to:
- Showcase family medicine's importance to health care systems, and why that requires an investment in teaching and scholarship
- Help faculty improve their communication, advocacy, and leadership skills
