Countdown to the Family Medicine Gala: An Elegant Way to Support Medical Student Programs

On Saturday, August 25th, 2018 in Raleigh, the NCAFP Foundation will present an elegant black tie (optional) evening complete with cocktails, dinner and laughs to honor one of North Carolina’s very best: Dr. Karen Smith, the 2017 AAFP National Family Physician of the Year. Most importantly, the Family Medicine Gala will help the Foundation to make an even larger impact on medical student interest in family medicine. NCAFP members are invited to come celebrate with our Foundation as it roasts and pays tribute to Dr. Smith’s career and contributions to family medicine in North Carolina. As the only fundraiser for 2018, all proceeds from this year’s Gala will go directly to the Foundation’s medical student programs that encourage interest in and promote careers in family medicine.

Reservations to attend the Gala can be made online at www.ncafp.com/gala. For attendees interested in spending the night, we have a terrific rate of $149/night for the hotel, but you must reserve your room by July 27.
