"2014 will be The Year Of The Family Physician," says Ronald L Fong, MD, MPH who is the Director of the Family Medicine Residency Network at the University of California Davis. He has written a series of essays at the Family Medicine Revolution website.
To have a galvanizing effort, we need to take to the streets of cyberspace and educate the editors ofTime that the family physician is the right choice for Person of Year in 2014.
Go forth, take a stand and stand out. Arise and lift those who are in need. Do it for your patients, neighbors and for the future. I believe it is our moment to shine as family physicians. Do not let it pass you by. Write your legacy from the inkwell of sweat. Our voices should be hoarse from staying on message and our fingers calloused from typing and texting.
