Leadership Message

"In 2018 Illinois’ Legislature will have a record number of seats open and we have a real opportunity to shape Springfield into a physician-friendly legislature.

IMPAC combines the individual voices of IMPAC contributors into one strong, unified voice to support candidates who understand the challenges of providing quality health care in today’s changing environment. Contributing to IMPAC is your first step in having your voice heard and the interests of your patients and your practice protected.”

Jere E. Freidheim, MD | IMPAC Chair | Burr Ridge

IMPAC is separate and distinct from ISMS. Your support of ISMS does not make you an IMPAC member – but even a small donation here will!
