What is FP-PAC?
The Family Physicians Political Action Committee (FP-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. FP-PAC is the ONLY political organization whose sole mission is to promote family physicians and family medicine. We are the voice of family medicine in California, and we need your support.
Why Contribute to FP-PAC?
“We are not able to bring our views forward effectively unless we financially support those who put the health of our patients and our ability to practice among their top priorities.”
– Patrician Samuelson, MD
“If every Californian family physician donated $100 each year to the PAC, family physicians could become a force that no one could ignore. It works similar to how we get to know patients better each time we see them. We can’t develop a longitudinal and comprehensive relationship with legislators based on trust and understanding without increased access.”
– Michelle Quiogue, MD
“I contribute to FP-PAC for one simple reason—they stand for what I stand for. I have seen time and time again CAFP and FP-PAC at the forefront of wise public health policies, health care access policies, supporting family medicine residency training, and assuring its members’ voices are heard by health policy leaders throughout the state. I think it’s time doctors recognized that our best avenue to taking on strong leadership in health care policy is to support organizations like FP-PAC.”
– Jeremy Fish, MD
“I believe that that it is imperative that those making decisions hear the perspective of family physicians – hear the voice of those of us are intimately involved in the day-to-day care of those whose lives are compromised by the cuts in health care and medical education. By contributing to FP-PAC, I am helping to make sure that family physicians and our patients are ‘at the table’ with those that make policy.”
