CAFP Foundation


CAFP FoundationThe CAFP Foundation is a nonprofit organization providing Family Physicians and their communities with education, resources, and research to advance Family Medicine and to improve the health of the people of Colorado.

We work in two broad areas:

  • Supporting the Future of Family Medicine
  • Public Health Education

Supporting the Future of Family Medicine

The CAFP Foundation seeks to inspire and engage the next generation of Colorado family physicians.

Attending the Summit gives students and residents the opportunity to attend a special educational track, visit with family physicians from across the state, and see what practicing family medicine in Colorado is all about. If you’d like to sponsor a student to attend the Annual Summit, please click below.

The Stop & Imagine program was developed as an evolution of the Tar Wars program. Recognizing a need to address both marijuana and tobacco in Colorado, members of the CAFP worked to develop a curriculum that would deliver fact-based and engaging information to 4th and 5th grade students. More information about the program, including information for schools and presenters, click on the logo above.

Tar Wars is a tobacco cessation program that was co-founded by Colorado family physician Jeff Cain, MD. The program is now housed at the national level within the American Academy of Family Physicians.
