Greetings MDAFP Members!

Becky Wimmer - MDAFP Executive Director

I’m very proud and honored to work with one of the largest specialty societies and the largest primary care association in Maryland, working to support and promote Maryland Family Physicians in order to improve the health of our state’s patients, families, and communities.

I feel most fortunate to work with so many great family physician leaders who do the good work of the Academy, driven by the strategic plan, and I especially enjoy the stories of what brings them joy in their practices and the volunteer work with MDAFP.

We cannot fulfill our mission without you, too. We need you to be engaged in our activities. When you’re part of our community in an active way, we are better – together! You can do this in so many ways. On an annual basis, by participating in our Annual Meeting, you can join in the learning, conversations, and networking that come with attending our Winter Refresher conference. You can attend Family Medicine Advocacy Day and influence policy. Would you like to connect with your legislator and be a Key Contact? Learn more here or sign up for our Key Contact Program. Want to make a difference by participating in a specific project or ongoing work? Then a workgroup or committee might be for you. Learn more about getting involved here.

We also invite you to tell us what you need from us in order to continue to be successful in your work as a Family Physician. Reach out to me anytime and let me know what you need from your academy, to learn more about being actively part of this community and contribute to our efforts.

Want to learn more? I hope you celebrate MDAFP’s 75th anniversary and attend the Annual Meeting & Winter Refresher later this month! I look forward to connecting with you there!

Becky Wimmer

MDAFP Executive Director
