Family Medicine Cares was created by the AAFP Foundation to address the health care needs of underserved populations, both domestically and internationally. Family Medicine Cares USA and Family Medicine Cares International provide patient care, deliver education and training in family medicine, support the opening of free clinics, and work to improve the health and quality of life of men, women, and children in need. Both programs offer opportunities for physicians, residents, and medical students to volunteer or participate in humanitarian projects.
Family Medicine Cares
Helping those in need, at home and around the world.
