All APA members are invited to join the APA for the Federal Advocacy Conference and take part in psychiatry playing a critical role in shaping health care policy during the 116th Congress. Before holding face-to-face meetings with their federal legislators and staff, attendees will learn first-hand APA’s federal legislative agenda for 2019.
The experience will include insights from APA’s leadership and staff on the inner workings of Congress and the legislative process as well as hands-on advocacy training so that attendees are prepared to go on the Hill and lobby for our profession. Attendees are also asked to bring their white coat or borrow one from a colleague, so we can remind Capitol Hill of psychiatry’s place in the House of Medicine.
There is a $250 registration fee and attendees will be responsible for their travel and hotel expenses. Space is limited so we encourage you to register before you miss out! Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org if you're planning to attend!
