t is a great honor to be installed as your Illinois Academy of Family Physicians President. I am a firstgeneration Polish-American family physician. My mother and father emigrated from Poland in the early 1970s to pursue the American dream with opportunities not possible in a Communist regime. My father, a tool & die maker and my mother, a housekeeper-turned-entrepreneur, sacrificed so their children could have a better life. I couldn’t be prouder to be the daughter of hard-working immigrants, who chose to become Americans. I first fell in love with medicine when my father suffered a heart attack. He was 37 and I was 13. At the time, I admired his cardiologist, the man who I credited with saving his life. He convinced my dad to change his lifestyle, to quit smoking, to become more active and change his diet, and to take medication. As a result, my father is alive today. Medicine drew me in with its complexity, not just the pathophysiology but the psycho-social, environmental and other factors that can influence a person’s well-being. I became a doctor because I wanted to treat the entire human condition, to help people in their most fragile states. I understood that there was more to people than a diagnosis. There are feelings, there is history, there is family. So I pursued family medicine, where I could help patients and their families at every stage of life in any setting. I completed my residency and fellowship in medical education at the University of Chicago and started my career teaching medical students and residents, first at Northwestern (Lake Forest) family medicine residency and later at my alma mater, the University of Chicago (NorthShore) residency program. Now I’m the medical director of Oak Street Health in Elgin. It is an exciting new chapter of my career, taking care of older patients in a true medical home environment! How did IAFP come into my life? I first became involved as a resident, at the urging of one of my faculty members, Dr. Lareina Pedriquez. I served as the
President’s Message Monica J. Fudala, MD medical school debt burden, protecting our scope of practice, and securing a payment structure that reflects the value we provide.
IAFP Resident President just as she did and was then elected to the Board. I remember feeling that my hands were tied when caring for patients because of elements beyond my control and my patients faced obstacles to affordable care, transportation or medications. Meanwhile, administrative burdens and prior authorizations became barriers to my ability to care for them. Engaging with IAFP and AAFP gave me an avenue to act on my concerns. At the AAFP’s Family Medicine Congressional Conference (now the Family Medicine Advocacy Summit), I learned about government advocacy and discovered the power to change health care policy through legislative action. I’ve built bridges with my state and federal lawmakers through the avenues provided by Academy policy and support. With our diverse membership and innovative ideas, we can change family medicine. I am proud to say that we have family doctors from throughout the state, from diverse backgrounds, ethnicities and employment structures in our IAFP leadership. Look at the board listing in this annual report to see the diversity of our board. With the aging population, there is a forecasted shortage of physicians. According to a 2018 AAMC study, the US will face a shortage of between 42,000 to 121,000 physicians by 2030, mostly impacting primary care. We must continue to build the pipeline of our family physician workforce. We cannot do this without addressing the high
Other top priorities for our organization are improving health care coverage and health care delivery, improving health information technology to make it useful and affordable, improving primary care physician payment, and addressing public health concerns. As family docs, we are ideally positioned to spearhead the nation’s public health efforts and play an instrumental role in better health care outcomes. The strength and future of this great organization is YOU, each individual member. Your talents, your passions, and your vision. Together, we can influence the landscape for better outcomes. We can reduce the administrative burden and physician burnout. I want to be your voice! You can email me at email@example.com. My pledge to you, and my request of you – is that we ALL encourage and mentor each other and especially medical students and residents. We need to show that it is great to be a family physician, in our words and actions. We need to reassure these fantastic new physicians they belong with us, in family medicine. We are so fortunate that our “family medicine family” is coming to town! AAFP’s Congress of Delegates and Family Medicine Experience (FMX) will be in Chicago in October. I look forward to celebrating our specialty when we all unite to improve our organization, ourselves and the health of our world. Hope to see you there!

A career alongside family physicians
Message from the CEO
I celebrated 30 years at IAFP in 2019 and here are a few wise sayings I learned along the way from various IAFP presidents: • Never, ever give up asking someone if they are ready to change (to quit smoking, to lose weight, to increase exercise, to eat healthy). The next time you do may be the catalyst for change. Vincent D. Keenan, CAE • See the possibilities in everyone you meet • You or your replacement will get this done • When things seem bleak and without hope, remember there is as much energy around in dark times as in bright times. The framework of my journey is much like the Academy’s motto: Devoted to Advocacy, Education and Action. Advocacy Some issues IAFP advocated for in the 1990s are ones we still face in some form entering the 2020s: • Scope of practice: Focused then on hospital privileges then, with challenges with scope in practice now. • Evidence based practice: Focused then on mandating length of stay for vaginal and C-section deliveries and today, support for immunizations with society trends that ignore evidence • Managed health care: Establishing then the role of family medicine as the leaders in health care, and now working to eliminate unnecessary administrative burdens • Public health: Advocating for clean indoor air then, and now fighting to safeguard teens against nicotine addiction • Work after clinic (WAC): Completing charts was usually an after-clinic task in the 1990s. Now with EMRs, WAC is still a burden. Scribes may help diminish WAC. Education IAFP provides the continuing education you need to stay current on the newest clinical information; to confirm your understanding of clinical topics; and to assure you meet professional and licensing requirements. • In the 1990’s IAFP had a regional CME program, Medicine for Today, in 20+ locations providing 30 hours each year. This volunteer-led program ended in the early 2000’s as CME regulatory demands outstripped our volunteers’ capacity for administrative work! (Sound familiar?) • IAFP responded by partnering with other organizations to provide CME opportunities and in quality improvement projects with critically-acclaimed results • IAFP partnered with family medicine experts to offer Essential Evidence, a two-day conference covering 20+ topics • The concept of Medicine for Today has been revived for day-long conferences for 2020. IAFP has also been active in strengthening the family medicine pipeline with activities and programs: • Hundreds of Illinois medical students participated in our Summer Externship program, which placed rising M2’s in practices all over the state for a four-week family medicine experience. • What started as an Illinois-only residency fair grew into the Family Medicine Midwest Conference, a multi-state regional conference for scholarly works and recruitment. Action I am blessed to act as a coach to for IAFP board members. I am impressed with their thoughtfulness, ingenuity and leadership. It is easy to represent you because I wake up every morning thanking the Creator that I get to work with you. Your values are my values. I give my heartfelt thanks to the presidents I have served. Each term is intense and demanding, being barraged with emails and texts from me, doing interviews with media or testifying before government bodies. You know how important it is to create a clinical team to address all the aspects of practice: prevention; acute care and chronic disease care. Learning how you build clinical teams has helped IAFP staff to team up to provide advocacy, education and action in support of family medicine values. My teammates and I have 162 years of service combined to IAFP. We all work to serve you!

AFP provides year-round advocacy in Illinois and Washington, DC, but two signature events in 2019 showcased the value of personal relationships and input from all levels in advocating for the issues that are integral to family medicine, public health and patient care. Our bi-annual three days of advocacy, Spring into Action brought 72 members from across the state and the career spectrum to Springfield. This event provides crucial early advocacy experience for IAFP members, especially students and residents. More than half of the total attendees were resident members. Each day was action-packed and unique, showcasing family medicine and exposing IAFP members to the variety of possibilities of any given day during the General Assembly session.
Devoted to Advocacy Government Relations
“Team Tuesday” was largely driven by students and residents. Our group attended a press conference announcing a proposal for a $1 increase in the state’s cigarette tax along with a tax on other tobacco products such as e-cigarettes. The bill, sponsored by Senate President John Cullerton, with the support of many legislators who have championed tobacco and nicotine use reduction policy, was eventually enacted. The “Day 2 Crew” (Wednesday) was the largest gathering, with over 40 advocates from Chicago, NorthShore, Peoria, Springfield and more. IAFP board member Santina Wheat, MD and former Resident board member Kristina Dakis, MD started their day at the Statehouse recording a radio interview with Illinois NPR before joining their colleagues to meet with legislators. Wednesday afternoon ended with a stroll to the Governor’s Mansion for a photo opportunity with Gov. JB Pritzker.
The Day 2 Crew with Gov. JB Pritzker
The “Day 3 FPs” (Thursday) started their Capitol experience with a 45-minute meeting in Lt. Governor Julianna Stratton’s office with her chief of staff. Resident physicians at Northwestern Humboldt Park and Lake Forest, AMITA LaGrange, along with board members, three IAFP past presidents, and others shared their experiences on topics from patient health literacy, to prior authorization hassles, to telepsychiatry as a game-changing improvement for access to mental health treatment. Edward Blumen, MD and Emma Daisy, MD with Charles Watkins (right) Chief of Staff to Lt. Gov. Juliana Stratton
IAFP continued our strong presence on Capitol Hill when 21 Illinois members attended the AAFP Family Medicine Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC. Illinois Congressman Brad Schneider (D-10) received the AAFP’s Congressional Primary Care Champion Award for co-sponsoring the Primary Care Patient Protection Act of 2018, which sought to help patients strengthen relationships with their primary care physicians. Illinois members met with Sen. Tammy Duckworth and staff for Sen. Dick Durbin, along with many other Illinois House members. IAFP has two leaders serving on the AAFP’s FamMed PAC Board of Directors: Ellen Brull, MD and resident physician representative, Michelle Byrne, MD. As a growing political action committee in Washington, DC, FamMedPAC reached $1 million in donations during the last election cycle and has worked hard to become more transparent in their disclosures to members on their donations. Its purpose is to help elect candidates to the U.S. Congress who support the AAFP’s legislative goals and objectives. We encourage our members learn more at https://www.aafp.org/advocacy/donate/fammedpac.html
2019 Government Relations Highlights Tobacco 21 becomes law in Illinois on July 1. Illinois become the eighth state to prohibit sales of any tobacco product to anyone under age 21. IAFP board chair Asim Jaffer, MD was a key figure in the statewide effort, as well as pushing for Peoria to adopt tobacco 21 policy in 2018 to help build momentum for the state law. He also attended the bill signing with Gov. JB Pritzker on April 7. Home Birth Maternity Care Crisis Study Committee: The Home Birth Maternity Care Crisis Study Committee was created to provide the General Assembly a consumer-focused, evidencebased solution to the Illinois Home Birth Maternity Care Crisis. Santina Wheat, MD represented IAFP with testimony at a hearing on September 19th. New laws in effect for 2020 • Mental Health Resources Public colleges and universities must make mental health and suicide prevention resources readily accessible to students starting in the 2020-2021 academic year. • Recreational Marijuana Illinois became the 11th state to legalize recreational use. Illinoisans cannot grow their own unless they are a registered medical marijuana patient, but adults 21 and up can legally purchase marijuana sold in dispensaries across the state. • Ensuring Women’s Rights During Pregnancy and Childbirth ensures that every woman has certain rights with regard to pregnancy and childbirth, including the right to choose her birth setting and be treated with respect before, during and after pregnancy by health care professionals. IAFP has a new lobbying firm: Our long-standing lobbyist and best advocate in Springfield, Bruce Kinnett retired from CookWitter after a 30+ year career. He represented family physicians and family medicine’s issues at the statehouse and with the Executive branch for over 20 years. IAFP is now working with Brian Wojcicki, JD and his firm, Illinois Capitol Group as IAFP’s lobbying firm in Springfield. After his fellowship in the Governor’s Office of Legislative Affairs, Brian worked for Cook-Witter, Inc. several years before starting Illinois Capitol Group. During his tenure at Cook-Witter, Inc., Brian lobbied on behalf of IAFP, alongside Bruce and participated in an AAFP State Legislative Conference and several government relations committee calls.

ILLINOIS FAMILY PHYSICIAN IAFP gets Dialed in on Diabetes The Illinois Academy of Family Physicians created a new resource, Dialed in on Diabetes, to help members and other providers caring for patients with type 2 diabetes. The campaign ran during National Diabetes Awareness Month in November and included a radio public service announcement that aired on radio stations in Rockford, Peoria, Springfield and Champaign the first two weeks of November. Dialed in on Diabetes website www.iafp.com/did is the home of our toolbox to help you with this challenging chronic disease and the related cardiovascular risks associated with diabetes. You’ll find CME programs, updated research, patient education links and resources and even some recommended reading for providers and patients. Our content experts Dr. Marian Sassetti, a family physician in Oak Park and Dr. Naomi Parrella, a family physician and obesity medicine specialist at Rush University Medical Center, used short videos to provide support on various aspects of diabetes you can use all year long. “Without question diabetes takes a toll on individuals, families, communities and our system as a whole,” says Dr. Sassetti. “We know there are no quick fixes when dealing with diabetes. But we can reverse the trend and make a huge positive impact across our communities.” Dr. Parrella also emphasizes the positive potential we have in turning the trends of type 2 diabetes. “Caring for so many patients with type 2 or at risk of developing type 2 diabetes may seem overwhelming at times. Diabetes is a complex chronic condition that responds to healthy lifestyle behaviors. We can help our patients along this journey.” Each video is about five minutes long and includes a blog post with greater detail and links to resources discussed in the videos. • Setting the Foundation and Tools to Help • Diabetes and Behavioral Health • Diabetes, Obesity and Cardiovascular Health • Navigating the Holiday Season with Diabetes The DID website has over 2,000 page visits to date and is available to members and the public at www.iafp.com/did
