Family Physician of the Day Program

Since 1983, the Nebraska Academy of Family Physicians has played an important part in the Nebraska Legislature through the volunteer Family Physician of the Day program. Through this program, NAFP members volunteer to take care of the medical needs of Nebraska State Senators and their families during the legislative session. Not only have NAFP members provided necessary medical services to the Senators, but they have also provided Senators input from a family physician perspective. This program has enabled the NAFP to build an effective relationship with our Senators; a relationship that must be maintained if our views and suggestions concerning Family Medicine are to be heard.

Thank you to our 2022 volunteers!

2022 continued to present some unique challenges for the legislature, however we were able to maintain the Family Physician of the Day program this year. Due to the HVAC construction at the capitol, it may have looked different than in the past, but we want to sincerely thank everyone who volunteered for the program this year! We had multiple physicians who were repeat volunteers, and we appreciate the time you take out of your busy schedules to do this.
