Chapter President Mitzi Rubin, MD recently sat down with Georgia Congressman Tom Price, MD to discuss a variety of issues affecting family medicine and our patients. One key discussion that Congressman Price and Dr. Rubin focused on was the epidemic of opioid abuse and addiction. Dr. Rubin also encouraged Congressman Price to join the Congressional Primary Care Caucus. Part of this discussion included Dr. Rubin giving Congressman Price a campaign donation from the AAFP FAM MED PAC to support his re-election.
The Georgia Academy has a state PAC (https://www.gafp.org/pac/) and encourages all family physicians to contribute to both our state and national PAC to help foster ongoing relationships with our elected officials.
