Each year, the Family Medicine Foundation of Michigan selects two residents and two students to serve as Michigan delegates at the National Congress of Family Medicine Residents (NCFMR) and National Congress of Student Members (NCSM), respectively.
The Congresses, which convene during the National Conference of Family Medicine Residents and Medical Students, were established more than 35 years ago as the official voices of resident and student members of AAFP. Through these forums, Delegates elect their national officers and advocate for a wide variety of issues and causes by introducing and giving testimony on resolutions, many of which ultimately become AAFP policy.
“My passion for Family Medicine and my interactions with medical students and residents in my clinical rotations have also informed me on the topics that are of concern for physicians in the changing healthcare environment,” said Sway Wu of Wayne State University School of Medicine (pictured at right, third), who will serve as Student Delegate when the Congresses convene July 27-29, in Kansas City, Missouri.
Joining Sway in the 2017 Michigan congressional delegation are:
- Resident Delegate: Julie Blaszczak, MD, University of Michigan Family Medicine Residency (pictured at right, top)
- Resident Alternate Delegate: Diahann Marshall, MD, Henry Ford Family Medicine Residency (pictured at right, second)
- Student Alternate Delegate: Anne Drolet, Michigan State University College of Human Medicine (pictured at right, bottom)
