CAFP Committees

The majority of CAFP Committees are open for all members to join. Committees are a great way to engage with the CAFP in a less time intensive way. All committees meet primarily by conference call, and members from across Colorado are encouraged to participate.

CAFP Education Committee 

Are you interested in helping family physicians be lifelong learners? Maybe you plan the best BBQ on your block? The CAFP Education Committee is a great place to help choose what topics are featured at our Annual Summit, plan additional events, and make sure all physician voices are represented in CAFP’s educational efforts.

CAFP Resident & Student Activities Task Force 

Students and residents, this is your opportunity to share what kind of events and support you want to see from the CAFP! While all members of the CAFP are invited to join the CAFP Resident & Student Activities Task Force, we particularly encourage students and residents to participate. The group will help design the student and resident track at the CAFP Annual Summit, as well as other events just for students and residents.

CAFP Health of the Physician and Public Committee 

If you’re passionate about the health of the community you take care of and your physician colleagues, the CAFP Health of the Physician and Public Committee would love to have you. Discuss critical public health issues you see in your community, shape grant-funded projects for the CAFP Foundation to pursue, and discuss ways to help physicians deal with emerging issues like violence in the workplace and finding career fulfillment.

CAFP Legislative Committee
