Leadership Team

Our leaders are fearless, determined, and experienced. The fight against building a strong and thriving family medicine workforce is personal for all of them, and that is why they will never stop working on behalf of family medicine everywhere.

Our Board of Trustees and Foundation staff participate in our events, fundraise, volunteer, and fight with us every step of the way. The OAFP Foundation is stronger because of their advice and leadership.

About the Board

The Foundation Board of Trustees is responsible for maintaining a proper balance among the interests of OAFP members, Foundation staff, and the general public. The Board is responsible and accountable to the organization’s donors, constituents, and the community at large.

Trustees are expected to attend meetings and to take part in the decision-making process. They are required to exercise a reasonable degree of knowledge, skill, and care in bringing their best judgment to the performance of their responsibilities. It is the duty of the trustees to keep themselves informed on programs of the Foundation, to study materials that are distributed to them, and to exercise basic, sound judgment in arriving at decisions.
