As healthcare reform continues to undergo a wave of radical change, now is the time to make your voice heard and play a role in lawmakers' decisions on federal health policy affecting oncology.

Join colleagues from your state on Capitol Hill Day, Wednesday, March 20, 2019, and meet with legislators to advocate for improved research funding, greater access to quality healthcare, and payment reform.

Scheduled by ACCC, the congressional meetings are an opportunity to share your story with lawmakers, so they better understand the realities and challenges of delivery cancer care in your community.

Capitol Hill Day is open to all ACCC members on the cancer care team and is included with your AMCCBS registration. Just check the box during registration to participate.

Capitol Hill Preparation and Briefing

ACCC will host webinars and conference calls to discuss how to best prepare—and what to expect from—your congressional meetings. The ACCC Policy team will conduct advocacy training meetings before Hill Day, with an issues briefing and talking points to effectively deliver your message.

Stay tuned for more details.
