Everybody Is Doing It: Are You an Advocate?
This month, the ACR board of directors is on Capitol Hill. As leaders of the organization, they have heard the cry of their membership and are dedicating time to address the concerns of the rheumatology community with Congress.
Advocacy is fun, easy, and essential to ensuring that issues affecting your practice, profession, and patients are priorities of the lawmakers in Washington, D.C.
Become an advocate by:
- Contacting your U.S. representative and senators and educating them on the issues affecting the rheumatology community;
- Visiting your legislators at home or in Washington, D.C.;
- Attending town hall meetings and becoming a voice your legislator knows;
- Inviting your U.S. representative to visit your office;
- Urging other rheumatology professionals and patients to advocate; and
- Contributing to RheumPAC.
