Celebrate World Family Doctor Day
May 19, 2018
Join us in celebrating World Family Doctor Day (FDD) on Saturday, May 19. FDD was first declared by WONCA in 2010 and it has become a day to highlight the role and contribution of family doctors in health care systems around the world. The event has gained momentum globally each year and it is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the central role of our specialty in the delivery of personal, comprehensive and continuing health care for all of our patients. It’s also a chance to celebrate the progress being made in family medicine and the special contributions of family doctors all around the world. Each year, WONCA focuses on a theme. This year’s theme is: Family doctors – leading the way to better health. You are invited to submit case examples of best practices that lead to better health – click here. The case examples will be forwarded to WONCA President, Professor Amanda Howe. And many will be featured in future editions of WONCA News.
