American Thoracic Society Offers Advocacy Workshop


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.”.
