In the video above, I talk about a news report I saw on Saturday, February 18, 2012 from the CBS Evening News talking about how Family Medicine and primary care are very important to the United States health care system. The AAFP President enjoyed this news report as well.
Even with this positive press, in my commentary above, I state that Family Medicine still has a ways to go in explaining what our specialty is. I talk above about even in the past week, to my own patients, I had to explain the scope of practice for our office. But, I'm still encouraged by news reports like this one. Yay Family Medicine!
