Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik was presented with an award by the New York State Academy of Family Physicians for her recognition of the value of family medicine and primary care, and her dedication to providing health care access for North Country families.

“I was honored to be recognized as a Congressional Champion of Family Medicine,” said Congresswoman Stefanik. “The New York State Academy of Family Physicians does incredibly important work, and I’m proud to partner with them in their efforts to lower costs, increase access, and expand care for North Country families by introducing legislation, including the Opioid Workforce Act and the Primary Care Protection Act, and committing to cosponsor the Training the Next Generation of Primary Care Doctors Act today.”
