Calling All CAP Heroes

Every day, CAP honors and celebrates the extraordinary impact our members have on the lives of their patients. It takes courage, strength, and dedication to meet their needs and help them thrive.

Naturally, a physician’s passion and lifelong commitment to selfless giving and caring for others often goes well beyond the clinical setting.

Patient Safety Advocate is a free bi-monthly newsletter created by CAP's risk management and patient safety experts, specifically for the independent medical practice.

That is why the Cooperative of American Physicians, Inc., through its CAPtivating Causes initiative, would like to promote and support the efforts of physicians who are actively engaged in medically-related philanthropy, working to advance causes that improve the health and well-being of individuals in our own communities and/or those across the globe. 

CAPtivating Causes Community Hero and Community Leadership Awards: Call for Nominations

This year, CAP will present the organization’s first-ever Community Hero Award to a CAP member whose charitable service merits special recognition. The award will include a $5,000 grant for the charitable organization affiliated with the physician’s work. One runner-up will receive the Community Leadership Award, which will include a $1,000 grant for the recipient’s associated charity.  

If you are interested in celebrating the work of a fellow CAP member who has made significant contributions to a charitable cause by offering his or her time, talents, leadership, and service, you may submit your nomination to Communications@CAPphysicians.com. Self-nominations are welcome. 

Nominations must include:

  • Name of physician
  • Statement summarizing charitable service

The deadline for nominations is August 30, 2019. CAP membership is required to qualify as a nominee. If there is a physician you would like to refer for membership, please contact Membership Development at 800-356-5672 or MD@CAPphysicians.com.

After a thorough vetting and selection process conducted by CAP employees, the CAP Membership Education and Engagement Committee, and CAP’s Board of Directors, selections will be announced in November 2019 and award payments will be issued no later than January 2020.

From supporting local hospitals and fundraising efforts for medical research, to contributing to our local youth and women’s organizations, CAP is committed to a variety of causes representing the socially-conscious interests of the physicians we serve and the organization’s ever-growing focus on giving back to our communities.
