Advocacy Update: Advocates Get Social

fb_logotwitter_logo Along with a new program name, Advocates for Internal Medicine Network, AIMn is also active in social media, which will make engaging with lawmakers much easier, effective and enjoyable. Follow AIMn's Twitter account and like ACP's Facebook page for regular advocacy updates. These changes and new resources will help increase Advocates' interest in advocacy at a time when so many pivotal changes are occurring in health policy; changes that undoubtedly will have bearing on your future patients and how you will practice medicine. We encourage Advocates to take advantage of these other ways to engage lawmakers, outside of traditional e-mails and call-in campaigns –where social media has taken on an increasingly important role.

Join the Advocates for Internal Medicine Network and help shape how federal legislation will affect your future patients and the practice of internal medicine. Advocates are provided with legislative updates and easy-to-use advocacy tools to communicate effectively, and develop valued relationships, with your federal elected officials and their staff.

For more information contact Jolynne Flores, Supervisor Grassroots Advocacy & PAC at jflores@acponline.org or (800) 338-2746 x4532.
