There’s strength in numbers. The 2022 Family Advocacy Summit is a unique opportunity for family physicians to directly lobby members of Congress and their staff on issues pertaining to primary care including increasing access to telehealth, addressing the mental health crisis and finally ensuring Medicaid payment parity.
Join us May 22-24 to meet face-to-face with your members of Congress and play a vital role in communication with lawmakers about the issues facing family medicine during these critical times.
Day 1: participants will be educated on the federal issues they will advocate on and to provide training in effective advocacy.
Day 2: participants will meet with members of Congress and their staff to advocate for policies that will ensure greater healthcare access for patients and improve the practice of family medicine.
