7th Annual Massachusetts ACP Advocacy Day

March 30, 2022 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

  • Click HERE to Register

Please mark your calendars for the 7th Annual Massachusetts ACP Advocacy Day March 30th - NOW GOING VIRTUAL! On March 30th, 2022 we will be hosting Advocacy Day using a virtual format. This event is open to all ACP members. It is an exciting way to learn about legislative advocacy and fight to make a change for the patients we care for every day!

In the past, we have advocated in these areas:

  • gun violence prevention
  • support for those with opioid use disorder
  • pharmaceutical drug cost containment
  • telemedicine coverage
  • universal vaccination
  • immigrant and refugee health and protection.

The past 2 years has been marked by unprecedented changes in how our legislators interact with constituents. Over the next few weeks we will be identifying key bills to support for our annual advocacy day. Potential topics include prescription drug cost regulation, addressing social determinants of health, and primary care reimbursement reform.

Overview of the event:

This event is perfect for people with all levels of experience with legislative advocacy, from first time participants to seasoned experts. In the morning, there will be a broad overview of the current state of healthcare legislation at the state level followed by an overview of the bills we will be supporting given by topic specialists. There will be a practice session on "How to Talk to Legislators" with an emphasis on using virtual platforms to engage lawmakers to help new participants feel more comfortable. Small group breakout rooms will allow participants to practice their skills in an intimate environment with experienced moderators.

In the afternoon, participants will meet virtually with the offices of their respective legislators. These meetings are generally in small groups, so new participants will have more experienced members to support them.  

The event runs from approximately 9:30 AM to 3 PM. Generally, we expect that participants be able to commit to the entire day as we will be making appointments for each participant with their affiliated legislators.

Deadline to register is March 11 at 5:00 pm.
