What is PharmPAC?

PharmPAC, short for the Pharmacy Political Action Committee, is the state affiliated political action committee of the Pennsylvania Pharmacists Association.

 

PharmPAC empowers pharmacists, pharmacy students, pharmacy technicians, and others to shape their political environment through contributions to candidates running for state office. By aggregating voluntary donations and supporting candidates who advocate for the pharmacy profession, PharmPAC advances the interests of pharmacists and the patients they serve.

 

PharmPAC is non-partisan in its evaluation of candidate support. The program and platform of each individual candidate on pharmacy issues, rather than a party label, determines whom PharmPAC supports. PharmPAC does not buy votes!  PharmPAC does help us have an active voice in the political process.

 

Our 2017 goal is $55,000. With your help, we can easily reach and exceed this goal!
