For more than 60 years, Abbott has been engaged with the AAFP in multiple ways, from exhibiting at Academy events to funding educational programs to collaborating with leadership. As a dedicated and engaged AAFP Foundation Partner, Abbott is a committed Champion, contributing at the $75,000 annual level.
Beyond that contribution, Abbott funded a $1.4 million, 18-month project to help family physicians better understand and utilize continuous glucose monitoring, a health care approach of tremendous importance to the millions of Americans with diabetes.
In 2020, Abbott’s vast contributions to family medicine were formally recognized with the Award for Distinguished and Meritorious Service to Family Medicine, the Academy’s highest honor for vendors, suppliers, and companies who foster the mission and advancement of family medicine.
Abbott’s connection to the AAFP Foundation is a perfect fit; the company’s purpose is “to make the world a better place by bringing life-changing health technologies to the people who need them.” We’re honored that partnering with the AAFP Foundation provides continuous opportunities for this global health care leader to demonstrate the power of that purpose.
The AAFP Foundation thanks Abbott for its ongoing, generous support, and invites others to learn more about the AAFP Foundation Partner Program.
