Our faculty member, Anna Goroncy MD, was awarded one of five STFM New Faculty Advocacy Scholarships to attend the annual Family Medicine Advocacy Summit in Washington, D.C fromMay 18-20. This year the group focused on promoting health policy changes around issues we see everyday. Specifically meeting with staff of Sen. Rob Portman, Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Brad Wenstrup to discuss the importance of gun violence prevention, GME funding for teaching health centers, the congressional primary care caucus and rural workforce production. Our residency is committed to building physicians who are advocates for change. We usually send at least one physician to the national summit and a delegation to the Ohio Advocacy Day every year.
