Advocacy in Action
ACP hosts annual special events that help educate policy makers, legislators and others about issues of importance to internists and their patients.
Learn more about ACP's annual report on the State of the Nation's Health Care and Leadership Day, including where ACP stands on timely issues.
ACP’s Dynamic Health Care Guide is a concise resource for members of Congress and their staff that lays out the six most important issues affecting internists and their patients. The guide distills complex health care issues into easily understood summaries of the background, status, and ACP’s views on the topic.
ACP Services Inc. holds an annual advocacy day on Capitol Hill. This event provides an opportunity for ACP and our members to increase our presence in Washington and bring visibility to issues of common concern. Participants receive a comprehensive orientation and briefing on ACP’s top legislative priorities and then have an opportunity to meet with legislators and the staff on Capitol Hill.
