Impact Positive Change

Federal Policy Agenda and Hill Day Preparation

Monday, May 3, 2021

With constant and aggressive congressional and executive action on health care, there are opportunities and risks to pathologists, the practice of medicine, and the patients we serve. You have an opportunity to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to make a difference. 

The sessions for our Federal Policy Agenda and Hill Day Preparation will brief members on our legislative and regulatory agenda in 2021 and allow attendees to engage with members leading our advocacy program. Pathologists will discuss health policy priorities and how to effectively influence lawmakers during virtual meetings with congressional officials on Capitol Hill. 

Annual Hill Day

Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Take advantage of an amazing opportunity and participate in our annual Hill Day event. Held virtually this year, you will meet with your representatives or senators in Congress and educate them on the health care issues impacting pathology. Participating in virtual Hill Day visits is the single best way to advocate on behalf of your profession. Meeting with your members of Congress will help you develop a relationship with their offices and establish yourself as a resource on health care issues.
