SFMS Political Action Committee

Newsom Event


SFMS PAC is the nonpartisan political action committee of the San Francisco Medical Society. SFMS PAC’s mission is to support candidates and legislators who understand and embrace SFMS' philosophy, goals and vision for medicine and health care.

Why Contribute to the SFMS PAC?

Doctors have never been more vulnerable. Health care in California is highly regulated and legislated. As government and the insurance industry continue their quest to control health care, your clinical autonomy is in jeopardy. Now more than ever, you need to fight to keep medical decisions in your well-trained hands. Medicine continues to face big challenges from budget deficits, implementation of health care reform, and attacks on MICRA and Medi-Cal. At the same time, the health of San Franciscans faces multiple risks from the economy, the insurance industry, and the health care delivery system. The voice of medicine must be heard on these issues.

SFMS PAC is an essential and critical part of SFMS’ legislative and political advocacy efforts, because it gives physicians a tangible means to support candidates who share our goals at the local and state levels. We are the voice of San Francisco physicians, and we need your support.

What Does the SFMS PAC Do?

SFMS PAC makes direct contributions to pro-medicine candidates seeking election to public offices in San Francisco, California state legislature, and select statewide offices. But SFMS PAC activities involve more than just making political contributions to candidates. We strive to educate physicians about the political process, and to help them become effective players in the political arena. SFMS PAC provides interested members with advice on organizing local events for legislative candidates, and holding meetings with legislators to discuss issues important to San Francisco physicians. We provide physicians with the tools to get involved in public policy decisions.
