UROPAC Hosts Fundraiser for Fellow Urologist
AACU and UROPAC Leadership hosted a fundraiser for fellow urologist Congressman Neal Dunn, MD in
Chicago in early April. Dr. Dunn was elected to be the US Representative for
Florida’s 2nd district in 2017. He serves on the Subcommittee on Health of the House Committee on Veterans'
Affairs and is a part of the influential Doctor's Caucus.
Prior to entering Congress, Dr. Dunn was a surgeon in Panama City for 25 years and was the founding
president of the Advanced Urology Institute, a 45-physician practice
with over 400 employees. He also founded the Bay Regional Cancer Center
and pursued a special interest in advanced Prostate Cancer. Dr. Dunn previously sat on
the Governor's Prostate Cancer Advisory Council and the Florida Blue
Physician Advisory Board.
During the fundraiser, Dr. Dunn gave an update on healthcare legislation in Washington and also
spoke at length about addressing the rising cost of
medication and administrative burdens. AACU and UROPAC leaders were grateful for the
opportunity to discuss pressing healthcare issues one-on-one with Dr. Dunn
during the event.
UROPAC is dedicated to bringing urologists and legislators together to address
important issues facing physicians and their patients. UROPAC will continue to
advocate on behalf of the urologic community and ensure that legislators make
decisions that are friendly to medicine.
