Dr. Stephens knew a lot about place—his place within family medicine and the place of family medicine as a catalyst for change in our communities. In “G. Gayle Stephen's Festschrift,” the evolution of our profession is mirrored by Dr. Stephen's seminal contributions to practice and service to his discipline. He describes our place as healers, teachers, scholars, builders, moral agents, professionals, and reformers. Stephen's place-changing career and ethos pave the way for our place as advocates for our patients and change agents for family medicine in this newest millennium.
