CAFP Health Equity Program

As an Academy our values are focused on achieving equal access to healthcare and equitable health outcomes, and dismantling the structures, systems, and biases that prevent both.

To live out these values, the CAFP Education Committee, Board Task Force on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and staff have developed the following equity programming opportunities for members to deepen their understanding of health equity and what role they can play as individuals, clinicians, and advocates to reduce health disparities and advance health equity. By engaging with our equity programming ​​current and future family physicians will be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and resources to advance health equity on both an individual, organizational, and system-wide level.

The Health Equity Resource Guide  (CAFP members only) is designed to meet you where you are in your understanding and experience with the concepts of health equity. Explore the modules for resources, research, webinars, podcasts, books, reflections, and more. (Email erica@coloradoafp.org for password). The Health Equity Champion Cohort provides a tangible 15-CME credit program for members to participate in a three-month self-paced learning experience alongside peers to advance their learning and apply skills to advance health equity.

Health Equity Champions

Members seeking to dive deeper into their health equity journeys can self-select into a 3-month program that provides them with 15 Enduring CME credits and a certificate of completion.

The cohort program will consist of three modules broken into four components (12 sessions). Each session will be self-paced and made up of curated content that is approximately 60-90 minutes in length. 

Content will be sent to you via e-mail weekly over the course of three months and will include articles, webinars, podcasts, videos, and self-reflections. 

Participants will have the option to join monthly discussions with peers in the cohort to reflect and debrief on their learnings.

We have two cohorts — one in the fall, and one in the spring. The fall cohort will launch in September of 2022 (registration closed), while the spring cohort will launch in March of 2023.

Cost to cover the CME: $250, residents and students free. 

We do not want cost to be a barrier to participation, so please let Erin Watwood our Director of Education, Meetings, and Events know if you need financial support in participating at erin@coloradoafp.org.

Health Equity Resource Guide

CAFP has developed this resource guide (CAFP members only) so that current and future family physicians will be equipped with the knowledge, tools, and resources to advance health equity on both an individual, organizational, and system-wide level.

The guide is designed to meet you where you are in your understanding and experience with the concepts of health equity. Members can access the toolkit materials to establish a foundational understanding and awareness of inequities. Members with foundational knowledge can take their understanding to the next level by tackling inequities in their clinic and addressing broader societal inequities that contribute to health disparities through systemic change.

We aim to move beyond a disparities framework to sharing solutions that current and future family physicians can take to champion health equity in Colorado.
