Give to Minnesota Family Medicine

Give to the Max Day 2019 is this Thursday, November 14. The MAFP Foundation has a goal to raise $15K to support externships and research and innovation grants for family medicine residents and medical students.

We are 12% of the way to our goal (thanks to early giving) AND need YOUR help to keep moving family medicine forward!
