Political Action

The AAFP recommends and urges individual members and constituent chapters to devise ways to implement best in class advocacy tactics to develop effective long-term relationships with legislators at the state and federal levels, leveraging support of the FamMedPAC and state and territorial family medicine PACs for further member engagement with legislators.

The Academy will continue to work with political parties and candidates to educate them on the importance of family medicine physicians and raise awareness of the fundamental role of the family medicine in the health care delivery system and the need to increase the number of family physicians.
