Thank you to olde Hartman et al1 for sharing with us the power of NAPCRG—the North American Primary Care Research Group—to help advance patient and population health through primary care research. Their international and intergenerational team outlines the importance of NAPCRG in empowering our quest to advance general practice and family medicine knowledge and practice. The supportive NAPCRG community includes practising clinicians, learners, patients and community representatives. Together, we can advance generalist science while we are all at work taking care of the folks in our communities and teaching the whole patient healers of tomorrow. The N in NAPCRG—first and foremost—has always stood for nurturing.2
