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.
Which dates are open?
This year we are trying to schedule Family Physician of the Day volunteers farther in advance, as we realize that schedules can be made three months or more in advance at your clinics and places of employment. However, this means that the calendar being used is very TENTATIVE and subject to change. The official legislative calendar for 2024 will not be available until late December when the Speaker finalizes it. The legislative calendar is always subject to change, and we will work with the Clerk of the Legislature office to communicate updates with as much notice as possible.
