A reception for all supporters of APAPAC will take place Saturday, May 1, at the Hilton New York. (APAPAC is APA’s political action committee.) If you are not among that number yet, then rectify the situation by stopping by the APAPAC suite at the Marriott Marquis. Your support is needed to help make APAPAC an integral part of APA's campaign to educate and influence Congress about the needs of the profession and your patients.

APAPAC provides the Association with a direct opportunity to support the election of federal candidates who will best advocate for psychiatry's interest in Congress.

With Election Day 2004 only months away, psychiatry faces a crucial time that will determine what protections are in place from abusive managed care practices for patients and the profession, protection of the privacy of medical records, any expansion of prescribing privileges to nonphysicians, the future of mental health parity, and reimbursement funding for psychiatrists. Supporting APAPAC will enable APA to maintain and increase its proactive education and lobbying campaign on these, and other, issues. Your PAC support enables APA to maintain our proactive education and lobbying campaign.
