At this year’s National Resident and Medical Student Conference in Kansas City, MO, the Foundation assisted in the sponsorship of a Kentucky Row at the Resident Exhibit Hall. With five residency programs represented together, the Commonwealth stood out amongst its fellow programs as a state unified by its desire to promote family medicine to the next generation of medical students. The programs represented are as follows: St. Elizabeth Healthcare, St. Claire Family Medicine, University of Kentucky, University of Louisville, and Glasgow Family Medicine Residency Program. Thank you to all the faculty and administrators who helped make this year a success once again!
In addition to the KY Row, the AAFP promoted 250 available Family Medicine Lead scholarships for medical students to attend the 2017 Conference. To allow for more opportunities for our own medical students to attend, the KAFP Foundation funded its own scholarship opportunity for those who were not selected by the AAFP for various reasons.
Your generous donations to the KAFP foundation allowed KAFP staff and leadership to visit several of the medical schools to promote these scholarship opportunities and as a result, 15 medical students were able to attend.
