This year, the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians staff will be volunteering 70 hours of community service to help commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Academy. All-year-long, the OAFP staff will be participating in volunteer activities that will give back to individuals and families in Central Ohio.
We are challenging all OAFP members to commit to 70 hours of community service, whether that is individually or with your practice staff. If every OAFP member completed 70 hours of service, there would be 350,000 hours of service donated, along with hundreds, and potentially thousands, of lives touched across the state.
Recently, the OAFP staff volunteered 15 hours of service at LifeCare Alliance, a non-profit organization that provides health and nutrition services to older adults, and medically challenged or homebound residents. Read more about our experience and watch the Weekly Family Medicine Update (WFMU) for our next adventure!
To provide a little motivation, we will be tracking the hours served and highlighting those experiences on the OAFP website, in the WFMU, and in The Ohio Family Physician. We are extremely excited to see our members get involved! To help us track the hours served, please complete and submit a volunteer form, a synopsis of your experience (250 words or more), and a photo to Communications Manager Morgan Pelt.
