The Medical Society of Virginia (MSV) believes that physicians must play an active role in the development of health care policy. In 2017 alone, there were over 350 health care related pieces of legislation at the Virginia General Assembly. Health care issues are and will always be at the top of the agenda for legislators, but the vast majority of them are not health care professionals. MSV continually represents the physician and patient voice in Virginia. To maintain and strengthen this powerful voice, it is instrumental to support the MSV’s nonpartisan political action committee, MSVPAC. The MSVPAC is the only PAC representing the unified voice of medicine.
MSVPAC strengthens MSV’s advocacy by engaging in the political process throughout the Commonwealth. A strong PAC is a critical tool in maintaining a legislative climate that is favorable to physicians and patients. Your contribution to MSVPAC substantially enhances MSV’s advocacy efforts, helps develop positive relationships with legislators and allows physicians to retain a voice in Virginia politics.
