As Congress continues to deliberate reforms to our healthcare system and decide how to move forward during and after the COVID-19 pandemic, now is the time to speaking with representatives on Capitol Hill and share the real-world impact that federal health policy has on cancer patients and care delivery in your community.
Join colleagues from your state for the ACCC Capitol Hill Day (now Virtual!) on Wednesday, May 12, 2021.
Since it's not logistically possible to organize our in-person Capitol Hill Day this year, ACCC is pleased to offer its members* a new way to experience advocacy trainings, legislative briefings, and Congressional meetings from the comfort of their home or office.
By using an easy to navigate online platform, you will be able to advocate for federal policies that improve access to quality cancer care. And by discussing the challenges that you—and your patients—face, you can help ensure that future legislation reflects the reality of cancer care delivery.
ACCC's legislative priorities will focus on the Telehealth Modernization Act and the Safe Step Act of 2021, and other opportunities to advocate for bills that closely impact the cancer care landscape.
No need to be a “policy expert” or familiar with specific legislation. These meetings are an opportunity to share your expertise and put a human face to decisions regarding federal healthcare policies.
ACCC will schedule your meetings and offer live and recorded training sessions where you can ask questions, learn more about the talking points on advocacy issues, and review logistics prior to May 12.
Familiarize yourself with ACCC’s advocacy priorities, hear about how to best prepare for your Congressional visits, and start thinking about your patients and programs story.
