Enriching the healthy connection between people and their communities.
Donald E. Nease, Jr., MD
VIce Chair for Community
The successful practice of Family Medicine depends on engaging and connecting with the Community.
The CU Department of Family Medicine understands that – and through focusing on this vital connection we seek to promote the fulfillment of the vision for Family Medicine described in the Folsom Report: A discipline practicing primary care embedded in and partnering with communities of solution.
We will lead Family Medicine in taking responsibility for developing the science, methods, practice, and curricula that equip those in our discipline with the knowledge and skills to effectively partner with communities to catalyze the connections and activities that promote health.
Community is deeply woven into the DNA of our Department.
