Get your Family Doctor of the Day (FDOD) volunteer date on your calendar early and get first pick of dates! We invite all of our active members and residents with a Kansas medical license, to serve as the FDOD at the Statehouse during the legislative session.
Available dates can be found at www.kafponline.org/FDOD.
FDOD volunteers report to the Statehouse in Topeka at 9:00 a.m. and stay until 3:00 p.m. taking care of legislators, staff and sometimes even visitors who need medical attention.
FDOD is a volunteer program organized by the Kansas Academy of Family Physicians, in which KAFP provides for a family physician to be present at the Statehouse each day during the legislative session. KAFP relies on its trusted membership to volunteer to serve as FDOD.
The FDOD program is an opportunity to network in Topeka, learn about the legislative process, attend part of a session or committee meeting and provide a much-appreciated service to legislators on behalf of KAFP.
Volunteers assist legislators and their staff with health needs that may arise throughout the day. Checking blood pressure, distributing ibuprofen, examining sore throats: the health issues are mainly minor health needs, with a few more serious ailments during the year. The legislators are grateful for the program and it showcases the great work of family medicine in patient care!
Kansas has some of the best family doctors! Help us showcase the great work of our members by nominating an outstanding family physician you know.

Family Medicine Discovers Rapid Cycle Scientific Discovery and Innovation (FMD RapSDI) is a new signature program launching this fall by the AAFP Foundation in collaboration with the AAFP National Research Network (AAFP NRN). FMD RapSDI is seeking practicing family physicians with little or no research experience to conduct short-term innovative and high-impact projects addressing patient care-inspired or clinical questions or topics. Chapters may wish to share this opportunity with members.
The first application period will open on Oct. 1 and the deadline to apply is Oct. 31, 2019. The second application period deadline is Mar. 1, 2020.
Two physicians will be selected as 2019-2020 FMD RapSDI Scholars. Each will receive a $40,000 grant for project associated costs and/or to offset time required to conduct research. FMD RapSDI scholars will serve as Principal Investigators for their projects and will receive support and mentorship from AAFP NRN to develop and refine a research protocol, perform project activities, and conduct data analysis. Scholars have an opportunity to participate in one or more research conferences/meetings and author a manuscript in a peer-reviewed journal.
The application process will be divided into two competitive rounds. An in-depth description of a research question, protocol document, and budget are not needed in the first-round application.
