With the election only two months away, this is the time to show up and be heard. 

That’s why we’re bringing together the GI community to raise our collective voice and show Congress that our needs and challenges are important considerations for discussions about health care reform. 

The patient-centric care we provide and the research we conduct are imperative to improving patient care nationwide but are made that much harder when fighting legislative gridlock. 

AGA Advocacy Day is an opportunity for you to advocate on behalf of issues that are significantly impacting our field. It’s the perfect time to learn about the legislative process and current policies that are hindering our ability to protect our patients and practice — regardless of your level of advocacy experience, if you’re working from home or what time of day it is. 

Your participation, no matter how involved, will show elected officials our voice cannot be ignored. 

  • Join us Tuesday, Sept. 22, at 10 a.m. EDT for the next Town Hall with the AGA President when Bishr Omary will talk with Congressman Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and AGA government affairs leaders about the future of America’s health care approaching Election Day.
