The Florida Podiatry Political Committee (FP-PC) is the State recognized independent arm of the Florida Podiatry profession, created to provide financial election support to bipartisan candidates for the Florida House and Senate. Since elected officials decide how Podiatric Medicine is practiced in Florida, one of the goals of the FP-PC is to be sure that those legislators are cognizant of the full scope of education, training, and experience of Podiatric Physicians practicing in the State of Florida.
The FP-PC created a Podiatric Fact Sheet, which is supplied to all of the candidates FPMA supports so when they are faced with medical legislation, Florida Podiatry will be included. Click here to access the Podiatric Fact Sheet.
FPMA has a web page that describes what the American Podiatric Medical Association Political Action Committee (APMAPAC) is and how FPMA members can make contributions. To visit the FPMA "What is APMAPAC?" web page, click here.
