Giving Hearts Day Donation Drive - February 11, 2016

The NDAFP Foundation is once again participating in "Giving Hearts Day" online donation drive. Giving Hearts Day 2016 will be Thursday, February 11. It is co-hosted by Dakota Medical Foundation, Impact Foundation and Alex Stern Family Foundation.  This one day event is an opportunity to donate to the NDAFP Foundation Endowment Fund.  This fund will ensure that the many great programs are able to continue with support for many years to come.  There is also an opportunity for donations made up to $4,000 total will be matched by the hosting organizations.  Please mark your calendar today and consider making a donation to the NDAFP Foundation Endowment.  

We need you!  Volunteer today!

We are looking for volunteers to help with the many great programs of the NDAFP and the NDAFP Foundation.  Do you want to be a preceptor to a medical student during their Don Breen Family Medicine Scholars Program?  Do you want to speak on a panel or participate in a "speed dating" event to inform medical students about Family Medicine and all it has to offer?  Maybe you would like to visit with Family Medicine Residents about the transition into practice.  Is there a committee that you would like to get involved with?  Is there a resource, event, practice management issue that you think the NDAFP can help with?  Are you interested in becoming a board member or officer of the NDAFP or the Foundation?  

There are many ways that you can help the NDAFP and the NDAFP can help you.  
Please contact the NDAFP office anytime to discuss the many options available to become a more active member of the NDAFP.

We are looking at new ways of communicating with our membership.  Social media seems to be the communication method preferred by the majority of people today.  We can share photos of our events, share important news about our members and stay up to date with what is happening with the America Academy of Family Physicians.
