On AGA’s annual Advocacy Day, the GI community converges on Washington, D.C. to educate federal lawmakers and their staff about the realities of patient care in their communities. We discuss important issues like regulatory relief for gastroenterologists, digestive disease research funding and patient protections.
While we can’t walk the halls of Congress this year, we can still make our voices heard on Capitol Hill.
Join us for virtual AGA Advocacy Day on Friday, Sept. 25. Over the past 14 years, we’ve welcomed Advocacy Day veterans and newcomers who want to build valuable relationships and remind policymakers that GI patients and providers matter.
We encourage members with all levels of advocacy experience to participate. AGA staff will coordinate your appointments and provide you with the training and tools you need for this day of empowerment. All you need to bring is your passion for advancing our profession.
Interested in participating in AGA Advocacy Day but unable to attend a virtual meeting? From joining renowned political analyst Charlie Cook’s keynote presentation to organizing a social media or letter writing campaign, we have plenty of opportunities to get involved.
