2017 Advocacy Agenda

Prep for Peds' Day at the Capitol WEBINAR

Now that the 2017 session is in full swing, which issues affecting pediatrics and children's health are taking center stage? What legislation is likely to pass or die? How can pediatricians and trainees leave an impact on legislators and effectively communicate the importance of protecting access to care and health equity?

This webinar will provide an overview of how to advocate on behalf of children at Pediatricians' Day at the Capitol (March 21) and beyond.

Friday, February 24 | 3 p.m.
