Leadership Day on Capitol Hill

The 27th annual Leadership Day on Capitol Hill was held on May 14 - 15, 2019 at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.  This two-day advocacy event is a great opportunity for the College and our members to increase our presence and bring visibility to issues of concern to Congress.  As usual, there were training sessions and briefings by congressional staff and key government officials.  Attendees also received a comprehensive orientation on ACP’s top legislative priorities.  A special briefing for Residents/Fellows-in-training and medical students was also provided.  Visits to Capitol Hill will take place on the second day.
