RI’s Dr. Michael Fine Wins National 2017 Advanced Primary Care Award

Rhode Island’s Michael Fine, M.D. has been awarded the Barbara Starfield Primary Care Leadership Award from the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) as part of their 2017 advanced primary care leadership awards. 

“There is no greater honor than to receive the Barbara Starfield Award. Dr. Starfield's lifetime of research and advocacy helped me understand the important relationship between health equity and democracy as well as the reason that primary care must be at the center of a health care system,” said Fine.

The awards was presented Wednesday night at the PCPCC’s Annual Awards Dinner in Washington, DC.

“We are elated to recognize Dr. Fine. As a family physician, community organizer, and advocate, Dr. Fine has devoted his career to reforming primary care to better reduce costs, improve access, and help the underserved community. He has also been a policy leader, successfully driving primary care and public health collaboration,” said PCPCC’s President and CEO, Ann Greiner.
