welcome to cafp president michelle quiogue


Michelle Quiogue, MD, FAAFP was welcomed by the audience and sworn in by Wanda Filer, MD, MBA as CAFP President. She gave a captivating speech in which she implored the audience to consider, "we're all stories in the end. Who tells your story?" She continued, "we have been changed by every family memory and every patient interaction; we are each of those stories. Our academy is made up of stories, our colleagues down the hall back at our office, every single patient who comes to us is a story, the communities in which we practice are ever-changing tapestries of stories. And as you felt and what you know is that there is power in stories; in listening to them, in telling them, in taking them to heart, and in learning them. But as physicians, we do often concentrate only on our role as listener to others' stories, diminishing our capacity and need to tell our own story."
