PlastyPAC Congratulates 2018 Midterm Election Winners

PlastyPAC helps elect individuals who promote policies that improve the lives of plastic surgeons and their patients. While there may be other issues outside of healthcare that are important to you personally, PlastyPAC supports members of Congress based on their efforts to advance issues important to the specialty and the patients we serve.

Following the November 6 midterm elections, the PAC is proud to announce that 79% of PlastyPAC supported candidates were elected to the 116th Congress. This success is only possible because of the ASPS plastic surgeons who contributed to the PAC during the 2017-2018 cycle. Thank you for your continued support.
