Is your family physician the best of the best? Do they go above and beyond to care for their patients? Are they active in the community? Do you think they deserve the 2016 Family Physician on the Year Award? If so, we want to hear about them!

The Iowa Academy of Family Physicians (IAFP) is seeking nominations for the 2016 Family Physician of the Year. Each year the IAFP awards one family physician the title “Family Physician of the Year” on the basis of outstanding service to patients and community, and devotion to Family Medicine.
