Your Support Expands the Reach of Primary Care Research

We rely on membership dues, conference fees, and outside funding and sponsorships to provide the programs and services that are needed by primary care researchers to thrive in all career stages.

The need for resources continues to evolve as the research goals of NAPCRG continue to evolve. Central to our current strategic plan is a focus on strengthening membership benefits to support researchers in their career advancement. We focus on creating greater visibility for research as a career and its importance in the discipline.

Retirement & Estate Planning

Maurice Wood, MD, provided the wisdom and generosity that NAPCRG is now known for. He created an enduring legacy through his research and by naming NAPCRG in his will. That funding led to the establishment of an award named in his honor to recognize lifetime achievement in primary care research. 

We encourage members to establish retirement distributions or donations in their wills and estate planning. Unrestricted funds can secure NAPCRG for the next 50 years. An unrestricted gift provides us with flexibility in the use of funds to address the needs of the future. We also welcome restricted gifts for specific purposes if the purposes do not encumber further infrastructure costs.

To discuss long-term estate planning and letters of agreement, please contact NAPCRG’s Executive Director Tom Vansaghi, PhD, at

Trainee Program

Funds will be used to assist trainee members by partially defraying the costs for students, residents and fellows to attend the annual meeting each year.

Patient/Community Members Fund

Funds will help patient partners attend meetings & offset travel expenses. Too often, community partners in health research consist of health professionals & organizational leaders. PaCE aims to identify partners who are the “non-usual suspects” – people who are not necessarily medical or public health professionals, who are not aligned with a particular professional or personal research policy agenda, & whose local influence is defined within the context of the community versus job titles.

Researchers from Under-served Areas Fund

Creating global connections is an important priority for NAPCRG. This fund supports those researchers from developing countries to offset travel expenses so that they can attend meetings. This allows us to welcome more new and long-term primary care researchers from different areas of the world, including many we have not had the privilege of hosting at previous NAPCRG gatherings. Eligible countries are those that are defined by the World Organization of Family Doctors as developing countries.
