Celebrate Family Medicine
On February 8, 1969, the specialty of family medicine was born when the American Board of Medical Specialties approved the application that officially established the American Board of Family Practice (now Medicine). To celebrate this significant occasion, please consider gifting $50 to the OAFP Foundation to help ensure the specialty is still strong 50 years from now!
