According to a news release, Dr. Wanda Filer will assume her role of president of AAFP in fall 2015. AAFP represents 115,900 physicians and medical students nationwide and is devoted solely to primary care.

A part-time family physician with Family First Health, Filer joined the federally qualified health center in 2012 and works at the George Street Center in York and the Hanover Center, the nonprofit said.
