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.
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.
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
