A Note from Your MDPAC Chair, Leah Davis, DO: I am thrilled to announce our ambitious fundraising goal for the Michigan Doctors’ PAC at this year’s House of Delegates: $30,000. Building upon the incredible success of last year’s HOD, where we rallied together to raise over $20,000, we are poised to reach new heights of support and advocacy for our profession. It’s not just about the numbers; it’s about the passion and dedication we bring to advancing the resolutions set forth at the House. As we gear up for what is sure to be a highly competitive election year, a robust PAC is essential to championing our collective interests. While large donations are undoubtedly impactful, let us not forget that even the amount of a couple of Starbucks runs can make a significant difference. Together, let’s channel our enthusiasm into tangible support, ensuring that our voices are heard loud and clear in the halls of power. If you’d like to get a jump on things and make your donation now, click here. Let’s make this year’s fundraising efforts for the Michigan Doctors’ PAC a resounding success!
