Celebrating Our CAP Community Heroes - A Call for Nominations!

Above and beyond. It’s a phrase that may be a bit worn around the edges, but in the hands of a compassionate and motivated healthcare professional, it can be an incredibly powerful force for good.

That’s the idea behind CAPtivating Causes, CAP’s community service program, and our annual Community Hero and Community Leadership Awards. Since 2019, these awards have celebrated the extraordinary efforts of CAP members who provide critical medical care to patients in need and also go above and beyond the call of duty to make a difference in their communities.

On-Demand Webinar: Key Strategies for Ensuring a Profitable Independent Practice
During this one-hour program, practice management expert Debra Phairas discusses how various business models and operational enhancements can increase revenue to help your practice remain successful in today’s competitive marketplace.

CAP values the active engagement of our physician members in their communities, throughout the state of California. Our CAPtivating Causes program is a way to shine a spotlight on their charitable service and encourage other physician members to join in the effort.

For 2022, we’re particularly interested in hearing the stories of members have been volunteering their time and talents through a charitable organization to make a real difference in our communities.

Your nomination must include the name of the physician (CAP members only, please), and a statement that identifies the charitable organization and summarizes the nature and scope of your nominee’s service through that organization. We must receive your nomination statement no later than August 31, 2022.
