The American Academy Of Family Physicians Foundation
The Organizationís Family Medicine Cares USA, launched in 2011, helps new and existing free clinics to care for the uninsured in areas of need across the United States. Grants are awarded for the purchase of tangible items, such as exam tables, electronic health records systems, and medical equipment. The Foundation collaborates with Volunteers in Medicine, which has a tested model for developing sustainable, locally supported free clinics. Volunteers in Medicine helps the Foundation identify strong potential clinic groups and continues in its current role of providing expertise and guidance throughout the clinic development process. Of particular interest are clinics that have an Academy member in an active leadership role within the organization. Priority will be given to clinics with an Academy member serving as medical director and to those who have family medicine residents and/or medical students involved as volunteers. Additional information can be found on the Web site.
