Advocacy & Health Policy: Go All-In for Legislative and Political Advocacy at the Annual Meeting
You’re in DC! Visit ACOG’s Legislative Advocacy Center and Advocate!
Located on the L Street Bridge, ACOG’s Advocacy Center will be open Friday through Tuesday during ACOG’s Annual Clinical and Scientific Meeting in Washington, DC.
Washington, DC is where many of the laws and regulations that impact your practice – in both good and bad ways – are born. As a health care provider and U.S. citizen, you can and must have a say in this process! Whether you’re a seasoned advocacy veteran or you haven’t thought about Congress since middle school civics class, the Advocacy Center wants to hear from you.
Come ready with all of your legislative and political advocacy questions! You will have the chance to interact with ACOG’s Government Affairs Team and discuss the issues that face your patients and your practice every day and help shape ACOG’s legislative and political priorities to fit your needs. Get information about a wide variety of federal, state, and political activities that ACOG currently has underway to support our specialty, and learn about hot topics on the move in the US Congress and Statehouses.
Annual Meeting attendees can get a free personal advocacy profile assessment and learn about the many different ways to join ACOG’s efforts to protect and advance the interests of ob-gyns and our patients.
