The Direct Primary Care Alliance launched on January 1, 2018 as a physician-led organization exclusively focused on growing the Direct Primary Care (DPC) movement. The Alliance was born from a grassroots network of practicing DPC physicians looking to provide a unified voice and resources for fellow DPC physicians. The motivations for launching the Alliance can be found in remarks from our inaugural president, W. Ryan Neuhofel, DO, MPH:

We now realize the transformative potential of the DPC model and are at the advent of moving beyond novelty.  But, many hurdles exist for us to achieve that vision. The challenges ahead of us are immense. Yet I can think of no better group of people to overcome these odds.
