Start the New Year Off by Contributing to NeurosurgeryPAC

In 2022, NeurosurgeryPAC raised $212,000 from neurosurgeons across the country, falling short of its $250,000 annual fundraising goal. These funds allowed NeurosurgeryPAC to support candidates who supported neurosurgery’s 2022 policy agenda, contributing $247,000 to 68 federal candidates, evenly split between democrats and republicans.

Congratulations to California and Nevada neurosurgeons, the 2022 Leibrock State Leadership Award winners, for the most contributions and the highest percentage of participation in NeurosurgeryPAC, respectively.
