FPMA Advocacy Resources
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.
Florida's 2016 Primary Election takes place Tuesday, August 30, 2016. Each year, the FP-PC supports candidates who are friends to our profession through campaign contributions. Please review the FP-PC list of supported candidates in your area by clicking here and vote in Florida's Primary. Good legislators are hard to find; good legislators who support Podiatric Medicine are even harder to find!
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.
