Policy Issues

Through advocacy and government affairs, ACPM works to elevate preventive medicine’s voice within Congress, the Administration, and the public sphere. ACPM is active on a number of issues important to preventive medicine and advancing prevention within health systems through policy statements, op-eds, press statements, letters to Congress and the Administration, and Congressional testimony.

As outlined in ACPM’s Policy Agenda and Strategic Plan, ACPM plays a role in many issue areas important to our members. ACPM leads the advocacy efforts on funding for preventive medicine residency programs and pushes for greater support for population health. The college is active in the healthcare debate on repealing and replacing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) and works to ensure that any new healthcare legislation includes strong public health support and access to clinical preventive services.
