    Join TAFP July 11-15 when we host the 63rd Annual Session and Scientific Assembly in our hometown, vibrant and quirky Austin, Texas. All of the elements for the premier conference for primary care physicians converge at the Hilton Austin Hotel and Austin Convention Center, located in electric downtown.

    There’s a little something for everyone here: from fine dining, live music, and shopping, to museums, the great outdoors, and family activities. Stroll down historic Congress Avenue, see imaginations soar at the Austin Children’s Museum, watch our resident bats take flight at dusk, or jog the Town Lake Trail around Lady Bird Lake. Even if you’ve visited Austin before, TAFP welcomes you to explore our ever-changing city.

    CME and bonus workshops

    “Family medicine is an unstoppable force but we have work to do. Engage your colleagues!” That was the message from AAFP President Glen Stream, M.D., M.B.I., at the opening event of AAFP’s Annual Leadership Forum, and the unofficial theme of both ALF and its sister conference, the National Conference of Special Constituencies, held in Kansas City this past weekend.

    More than 20 TAFP delegates, leaders, and staff attended to represent our state. NCSC attendees—representing GLBT physicians, minority physicians, women, international medical graduates, and new physicians—developed recommendations for the AAFP Congress of Delegates and held elections for various national leadership positions. ALF attendees learned the latest on leadership, association management, media interaction, website optimization, and how to stay relevant in a competitive market.
