Public Policy & Advocacy

Have a voice in NE Legislation

As a chapter, we are always watching bills coming through the Nebraska legislature.  Do you have opinions on current legislation?  Or perhaps you have a connection to a Nebraska lawmaker and would like to make contact with Chapter leaders.  If so, please take a moment to email the chairs of the chapter Health & Public Policy Committee, Dr. Richard J. Seitz or Dr. Grant Turner.

2020 Leadership Day Funding Applications Available

ACP Leadership Day will be held on May 12-13, 2020, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, DC.  This two-day event enables the College to increase its presence on Capitol Hill and bring our issues of concern to U.S. lawmakers.

Again this year, our Chapter will underwrite the travel of one medical student and one resident to attend Leadership Day in Washington, DC.  All other Chapter members are welcome to attend at their own expense.  

Chapter members who participate in Leadership Day will receive advocacy training, an update on the College's legislative priorities, briefings from Members of Congress, Administration officials and key Capitol Hill staffers, and an opportunity to meet with Nebraska's elected officials. A special briefing for Residents/Fellows-in-Training and medical students is also provided.

If you are a medical student or resident specializing in Internal Medicine, apply today for a chance to attend Leadership Day with travel expenses paid by the Chapter!  Click here to find the application, due by Feb. 23, 2020.
