AAFP launches new Quick Pay online dues service
AAFP
Paying your dues just got easier. AAFP has launched a new online dues payment service. Quick Pay allows any individual (member, office staff, spouse of a member, etc.) to pay a member's dues invoice without logging in to the member's AAFP account. The only information that is required to make a payment is the member's AAFP ID number and dues invoice number. It’s as simple as that.

If you would like to sign up for payment options such as monthly installments or auto renewal, logging in to your member account is required for security purposes. Check out Quick Pay today!

Save the date — April 18, 2015 — free clinic event for uninsured
AAFP
Over 1,000 uninsured patients need medical care on Saturday, April 18, 2015 in Kansas City, Missouri. Volunteers are needed — doctors, nurses, residents, medical students! Many of these patients haven't been able to see a doctor for several years; you are doing them an incredible service.

The National Association of Free Clinics, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, is returning to Kansas City to sponsor a one-day free medical clinic for the uninsured on Saturday April 18 2015. The clinic will offer primary care, some specialty care, point-of-care testing, four months of free medications, connections to after care, health education and ACA navigators. The NAFC will obtain malpractice coverage for this event.
