If you are interested in playing an active role in the RIAFP you are welcome to join one of our three committees open to all members:
The Education Committee supports the Continuing Medical Education of practicing Family Physicians. We support medical student education and the training of family physicians through family medicine residency programs. The Education Committee also supports and promotes research in the field of Family Medicine. Every year the Education Committee plans the annual RIAFP conference.
The Advocacy Committee educates and promotes legislative efforts and advocates for the health of the people of RI and initiates legislative and health policy initiatives which will enhance the ability of family physicians to provide excellent, cost-effective, continuous care for patients. We work with the Rhode Island Medical Society on state health and wellness legislation issues. We travel to the AAFP yearly Family Medicine Congressional Conference to meet with federal legislators. Our Delegates travel to the AAFP Congress of Delegates each year to work on AAFP policy issues.
