Students to National Conference Campaign
2018 Students to National Conference Campaign
Through the generous support and dedication of our members, we have achieved our $30,000 fundraising goal to send students to the 2018 AAFP National Conference. We all know the importance of this project in ensuring a strong future for family medicine in Wisconsin. This year, we are excited to say that a total of 59 students from Wisconsin will be representing us at this conference.
As an academy, we have significant influence in determining the success of this campaign. In seven years of supporting this program, we have provided funding for 257 students to attend National Conference, and 75% of those students have matched in Family Medicine. That is an incredible return on investment!
But our mission doesn’t end here - It is never too early ro start preparing for 2019! If you would like to contribute towards next year’s goal, any amount that you wish to donate is appreciated, and we have created several levels of tax deductible gifting to help the WAFP-Foundation send a student to the national conference.
Donations for the 2019 Send Students to the National Conference are open.

The call for dedicated, caring family doctors in Wisconsin is more important now than ever before as there are growing concerns about the future workforce. In an effort to engage and educate medical students about the opportunities in family medicine, the WAFP-Foundation is aiming to send 50 students to the 2019 National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students.
