Be Heard on the Hill
Don’t Miss ACC’s Virtual 2020 Legislative Conference!
You’re invited to attend the American College of Cardiology’s (ACC) first-ever virtual Legislative Conference from Oct. 4-6. This conference occurs at an unprecedented time, when the COVID-19 public health emergency has underscored the importance of ACC’s advocacy work on behalf of clinicians, patients, and the entire medical community. As a result of the record-breaking 12,000 messages sent to Congress from ACC members, our voices were heard and many CV policy priorities were included in each COVID-19 legislative relief package, including vast telehealth waivers and flexibilities, billions for PPE and testing, and expanded access to home health services for Medicare beneficiaries, among others.
But our work continues!
This year’s special virtual event will provide the inside scoop on regulatory changes, legislative action and the state of cardiology to empower members to become effective advocates for patients and cardiovascular professionals. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear directly from the experts who shape health policy. You’ll also have an opportunity to virtually meet with congressional leaders to share ways the cardiovascular community is providing quality, cost-effective, evidence-based care to millions of patients nationwide.
The conference will begin on Sunday, Oct. 4, with a special HeartPAC-sponsored speaker event. Email Caitlin Demchuk, firstname.lastname@example.org, with questions or to RSVP. On Monday evening, educational sessions on the hot-button issues that impact cardiovascular professionals and patients will arm the entire cardiovascular care team with the information and tools necessary to effect change on both the state and national level. On Tuesday, attendees will virtually attend pre-arranged meetings with their congressional offices.
