We are looking forward to seeing many of you in DC in May!
The Advocacy Training SIG meeting will be held on Saturday May 4 from 8:30 to 11:30 AM. We have a really fun session planned. As we will be in our nation's capital, we are hoping to invite some legislators and/or staffers to participate in a discussion of child and adolescent health advocacy topics and strategies for interaction on a federal policy level. The learning objectives for this session include: 1) discussion of issues in pediatric health policy; 2) understanding policies surrounding the pediatric workforce; 3) exploring strategies for policy fluency - the process for creating a policy agenda, strategies for communicating with legislators, and media training. Attendees will have an opportunity to learn and share advocacy skills and stories. The panel discussion will be followed by oral presentations of trainee advocacy projects, and a poster session featuring a diverse group of educational or community projects or public policy initiatives addressing pediatric health or health care.
This is also our last year as Co-Chairs, so we are looking for members of our SIG to step forward to take the reins next spring. Please let us know if you are interested.
Please contact us with any questions. We look forward to seeing you.
