Nominate Your Family Doctor for Family Physician of the Year
Date:1/16/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., Jan. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Patients are urged to suggest candidates for Pennsylvania's "Family Physician of the Year 2008." Patient participation is vital; many past award winners were nominated by patients.

The annual award, sponsored by the Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians (PAFP), honors an outstanding, community-minded family physician who provides compassionate, comprehensive care. Eligible nominees must be members of PAFP. Candidates should serve as role models professionally and personally to their communities, other healthcare professionals, family practice residents and medical students.

Pennsylvanians who wish to nominate a family doctor for the honor should send the nominee's name, office address and phone number, and as much supporting information as possible to PAFP by April 1. Anyone submitting a nomination also should include their own contact information (email is very helpful). The PAFP will contact both parties for confirmation.

-- Online nomination form: http://www.pafp.com.

-- Mail: PA Academy of Family Physicians, 2704 Commerce Drive, Suite A, Harrisburg, PA 17110.

(NOTE: Please make sure materials are legible.)

-- Email: mail@pafp.com.

A task force reviews nominations and supporting information, and elects a candidate. The PA honoree usually then is nominated for national Family Physician of the Year award from the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Past winners include Ellen Smith, MD (Lemoyne) in 2007; Peter Soraruf, MD (Kennett Square) in 2006; Diane Bonaccorsi, MD (Reading) in 2005; William Rodgers, MD (Norristown) in 2004; James Blore, MD (Doylestown) in 2003; Edward G. Zurad, MD (Tunkhannock) in 2002; and Marian Block, MD (Pittsburgh) in 2001.

The Pennsylvania Academy of Family Physicians was founded in 1948 and this year celebrates its 60t
