Have you ever wanted to get involved in advocacy but don't know how to do it? Our U.S. COPD Coalition partner, the American Thoracic Society (ATS) will be offering a workshop on advocacy as part of the ATS 2019 Annual Conference. The workshop, entitled Health Policy Advocacy 101: Effectively Inform Your Elected Officials” will be held on May 21, 2019 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, TX.
According to a news briefing by the ATS, the Health Policy Advocacy workshop is designed to introduce attendees to effective advocacy at both the state and federal level. “Using a mix of didactic lectures & small group role playing, attendees will learn how to prepare for & participate in legislative meetings, write letters to the editor & deliver media messages using social media.”.
