Thank you, RheumPAC investors!


2 minutes

With the 2016 election season coming to a close, we wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to our RheumPAC major investors ($250+). RheumPAC has been successful in meeting and engaging more than 65 members of Congress in one-on-one or small group settings, in addition to over 250 Capitol Hill visits. We have also had local ACR members attending fundraisers in Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, and Texas. RheumPAC will continue to grow and expand our influence in the coming years. Thank you to those ACR/ARHP members who made it possible in 2016.
