AZ Chapter of AAPS Supports Frank Riggs for Governor
The Arizona State Chapter of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, a voice for private medicine since 1943, with hundreds of members in Arizona, supports former congressman Frank Riggs for Governor. Mr. Riggs is the only candidate committed to rolling back the ObamaCare AHCCCS (Medicaid) expansion.

AAPS Member Dr. Rand Paul Wins Presidential Straw Poll
Longtime AAPS member Rand Paul, M.D., who spoke at our annual meeting in 2009, won the first major Presidential straw poll for 2016 at CPAC today.  Congratulations, Rand! Ideas do matter.
