Meet our 2018 Guest of Honor: Dr. Karen L. Smith

karen-smith-md-her-website Dr. Karen Smith lives and practices in Hoke County.   She operates a solo private practice in a small town called Raeford, where she has made it her life’s work to improve patient lives and make this small, rural, North Carolina town a healthier place to live, work and play. 

Dr. Smith, received her Bachelor of Science degree from Duke University. She then traveled to Pennsylvania to attend Hahnemann University School of Medicine and returned to Duke University, where she completed her residency at the Duke SRAHEC program in Fayetteville, NC. Dr. Smith is a Past President of the NC Academy of Family Physicians and has also served on the NCAFP Board of Directors.  She currently serves as the Chapter delegate to the AAFP Congress of Delegates.    

Dr. Smith’s efforts were recognized when she was named the 2017 AAFP Family Physician of the Year.  Others became aware of what we already had the privilege to know, that she is a rural primary care rock star, who relentlessly pursues the use of technology and innovation to operate her private practice.   In addition to her varied professional and community roles, Dr. Smith is a wife and mother to four children.  

Please join the NCAFP Foundation in celebrating her remarkable contributions and career.
