What is the PAC? The Political Action Committee (PAC) is a
bipartisan group dedicated to helping pro-family medicine
candidates win election to public office and educating current
legislators on the importance of family medicine. The Missouri
Academy of Family Physicians also contracts a lobbyist to help
ensure that our members' positions are supported throughout the
state legislative process.
the PAC At
times, watching the news at night or reading the paper in the
morning can be overwhelming and feel like you have little
control over how the country, or even the state, is being run.
Decisions are taking place everyday that affect aspects of your
life even as personal as your child's education, the freeway you
use everyday, and the ways you are allowed to practice medicine.
Don't let this overwhelming feeling stop you from taking action
to make a difference in the way those decisions are made. Health
care reform proposals are being debated as you read this. There
are bills being heard right now that need the voice of Family
Medicine to be heard!
