Dear Concerned Pharmacist, Pharmacy Student and Pharmacy Owners,
Decisions and laws are made as to how you will practice your profession of pharmacy, care for your patients, as well as how health care costs affect state budgets. Your vote and contributions have a direct impact on these elected officials who represent you and make decisions affecting the future of your profession.
The Florida Pharmacist Political Committee (FPPC) is a means for us all to pool our resources and have a greater reach to candidates who have or will have an understanding of what's best for the practice of pharmacy and each aspect of patient care. Over 95% of your contributions go directly to Florida state political candidates to support their campaigns. Over 85% of the political candidates supported by our efforts were successful in their campaigns.
The Florida Legislature typically reviews a number of pharmacy issues that affect not only our businesses but also how we practice the profession. The advocacy efforts of the Florida Pharmacy Association supported by your contributions to the FPPC has helped to ward off onerous public policy designed to put you out of business or compromise the relationships that you have with your patients.
If you like you can download a printed brochure through this link and send it in with your check contribution or you can make your contribution on-line.
