Texas Orthopaedic PAC

TOPAC: Our Voice in the State’s Political Process

TOPAC ensures that orthopaedic surgeons have a strong voice in the state’s elections.  It allows orthopaedic surgeons to tell our story to political candidates about the impact of policy issues on care or Texas patients.  Without TOPAC, our opponents would take advantage of our absence and define musculoskeletal issues by using their own terms.

Please join us today by supporting TOPAC by check or credit card.  Please note that TOPAC can not accept corporate donations – only contributions from individuals or unincorporated partnerships (no “inc.” after the name).
