CAFP Foundation
The 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.

Public Health Education

We are invested in supporting public health education, both for children in school and for adult Coloradans. Learn more about current public health initiatives 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. Get in touch to coordinate a program.

Tar Wars
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.
The Fit Family Challenge program is designed to integrate healthy living activities and lessons into family physician offices. This innovative, evidence-based program has been piloted in family medicine practices across Colorado.
