Everyday Excellence

Celebrating the everyday success of family physicians 

Celebrating Our Members

Building on the continued success our Family Docs Rock Campaign and our annual awards, Everyday Excellence – Celebrating Our Members is an opportunity for family physicians to recognize their peers who continue to advance care, grow the Patient’s Medical Home, and advocate for the Family Medicine community.
