Please download and print as needed.

Download the infographic (Value of Family Medicine)The Joint Physician Advocacy Committee (JPAC) developed this infographic to help illustrate the role Family Medicine plays in our complex health care system. It offers a snapshot of all the health services provided in a single day in Alberta and notes that although Family Medicine delivers the majority of services, it represents only 8% of health care spending in Alberta. Download the infographic.

We want all Albertans to understand that Family Medicine is the foundation of our health care system. Without it, they won’t be able to access the care they need, when and where they need it.

Please consider downloading and posting this infographic in your clinic or sharing it on social media. If you’d like, we’d be happy to print it and mail it to you – just send us an email at with your contact information and how many copies you would like.
