NYSAFP Mission Statement

Guided by principles of inclusivity and community, the NYSAFP empowers family physicians, residents, and students to lead through advocacy, education, and mentorship to improve the lives of our members and our patients.


NYSAFP is governed by a Congress of Delegates, which meets in June and by a board of directors which implements policies established by the Congress. Six standing commissions assist the board: Advocacy, Education, Leadership, Membership, Operations and Public Health
