Join more than 15,000 colleagues in the Advocates for Internal Medicine Network (AIMn) in advocating for the interests of internal medicine in Washington, D.C. The AIMn program is for ACP members interested in participating in federal advocacy. It is designed to help members engage with their federal lawmakers on policy issues important to ACP and internal medicine.
Legislative Action Center
As key issues approach the decision-making stage on Capitol Hill, the College emails or faxes legislative alerts to AIMn members through our Legislative Action Center (LAC). Legislative alerts include all of the necessary information (including sample messages that can be easily personalized) to make informative contacts with members of Congress, and ACP staff is always available to provide support and answer legislative questions.
Once enrolled as an Advocate you can use the College's LAC to respond easily to current ACP legislative alerts, identify your federal legislators, monitor important legislation, and e-mail or call your members of Congress.
The Richard Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award
The Richard Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award recognizes the Advocate, in the AIMn program, who has made exceptional contributions to advance the College’s public policy agenda. Each year at Leadership Day, ACP selects and honors a Neubauer award winner, and recognizes other Advocates who have made contributions to our advocacy efforts.
The Capitol Key Newsletter
The Capitol Key is an e-newsletter distributed to AIMn members periodically throughout the year. It features the grassroots advocacy activities of AIMn members and news about key advocacy events.
