About Corporate Partnership

Your company's Corporate Partnership allows the AAFP Foundation to create programs that support family physicians and the patients they serve, including:

  • Community and humanitarian outreach programs
  • Leadership grants for residents and medical students
  • Research in Family Medicine through the AAFP Foundation's grant awards programs
  • The Center for the History of Family Medicine, a nationwide repository of catalogued materials on the history of the specialty

Benefits for Corporate Partners

  • Corporate partnership easel cards for use in exhibits at Family Medicine meetings and hospital and clinic table tops
  • Special badge ribbons for use at the AAFP Family Medicine Experience (formerly AAFP Assembly) and other selected meetings
