The American College of Rheumatology is accepting applications for patients to attend Advocates for Arthritis September 9 – 10, 2019 in Washington, D.C.
The annual event brings together patients and rheumatology professionals to advocate directly to members of Congress as well as hear from top representatives from key legislative and regulatory agencies about current issues affecting rheumatologic care. Advocates for Arthritis is a great way to engage in the legislative process and increase awareness of rheumatology on Capitol Hill.
This is also a great opportunity to learn more about the advocacy process and raise awareness of the issues you care about. Patients from around the country will attend, share their stories and connect with doctors, nurses, and others in the rheumatology field.
Interested in attending Advocates for Arthritis? All Simple Tasks advocates are encouraged to apply. To apply, complete the Advocates for Arthritis Application by July 12, 2019.
