Richard Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award
The annual Richard Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award recognizes the member who has made exceptional contributions to advance the College’s public policy agenda. Advocates communicate as constituents with their members of Congress on issues of importance to internists and their patients and to medical students. The College has over 8,000 Advocates who partner with ACP’s Washington office.
The award recipient is chosen based on the quality and quantity of responses to ACP’s congressional Legislative Alerts, writing editorials and letters to the editor, meeting with his or her members of Congress, expanding chapter federal advocacy efforts, recruiting Advocates, and organizing and attending Leadership Day, and other meetings with legislators. The Richard Neubauer Advocate for Internal Medicine Award is presented during the College’s annual Leadership Day held in Washington, DC. In addition, the recipient is recognized at the following year’s Convocation.
