The MAFP held its House of Delegates on March 30, 2019, bringing together nearly 100 family physicians from across Minnesota to help guide the policies and set the direction of the Academy.
Twenty-three resolutions were discussed on issues ranging from Minnesota’s investment in primary care to the rural healthcare workforce shortage to support for current rural family physicians and so much more.
Resolutions are the way members bring forward changes and/or issues that affect the specialty.

The MAFP was honored to have special guest AAFP Executive Vice President and CEO Douglas Henley, MD, FAAFP, to bestow the presidency on incoming MAFP President Renée Crichlow, MD, FAAFP. Other officer positions were also elected, with new terms beginning in July 2019.
