PharmPAC - Invest in Your Profession

  

Does your voice and your involvement really matter?  It does - especially when you combine your voice with other pharmacy advocates.  

 

Pharmacy is YOUR profession . . . use your political voice to protect and improve it.  Whether you like it or not, the political process affects you personally every day.  It also has a major impact on your pharmacy career. Government affects all aspects of the pharmacy profession as well as the pharmacy operations, including licensing and personnel requirements, relationships with patients, reimbursements, insurance policies, record-keeping demands and more. Clearly, laws and regulations made in Austin have a direct impact every area of your life.  

 

You can let things happen or make them happen.  When pharmacy professionals get involved in politics, they help ensure that health policies benefit both the patients and profession.  Protecting your profession and business is critical.  And becoming a PharmPAC Member is an important first step!  

 

Pharmacy must support and help elect individuals who are accessible, willing to listen to your opinions and interested in learning how their decisions impact you.  Lawmakers must be educated about pharmacy issues and must be made aware of the full implications of their policy decisions.  Now more than ever, you need legislators who understand and support your patients and profession.  

 

The candidates and office holders that are supportive of pharmacy need your help. The cost of political campaigns continues to grow and our friends must have adequate financial resources to win.  The funds you invest in PharmPAC are used to help pharmacy-supportive individuals with their political campaigns for public office in Texas. 

 

By the way, PharmPAC also keeps PAC members informed and educated about the political and legislative processes as well as the public policy issues of importance to the profession.  PharmPAC is your election tool to help shape and protect the health of your patients and your practice.  

 

You should know that pharmacy oftentimes battles with other special interests in enacting legislation or adopting regulations of importance.  Some of these individuals and organizations attempt to derail measures that would help pharmacy care.
