Promoting Advocacy in Medicine

The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) strives to advance priorities in public health policy and advance the field of preventive medicine. Our advocacy is stronger as a collective voice and needs you, as a member to share your stories and the need for prevention with elected officials at the Local, State and Federal level.
