ASHP-PAC: Your Contribution Gives a Voice to the Patients Who Need You

The ASHP Political Action Committee (ASHP-PAC) is the only political action committee focused on the issues that impact health-system pharmacists’ professional needs. ASHP-PAC helps ensure that the issues affecting you and your patients are heard by members of Congress.

A well-funded PAC will help:

  • Protect your patients by helping your members of Congress understand the issues that you face and pass laws that will support your role.
  • Elect members of Congress who support the role of health-system pharmacists in patient care.
  • Build relationships in Congress and educate legislators about our issues.
