Academy Leadership Program Fellows Advocate for Physiatry in D.C.

Jul 14, 2017

The fellows of the 2015-2017 Academy Leadership Program recently assembled in Washington, D.C. They met in the offices of the Academy’s lobby firm—Powers, Pyles, Sutter, and Verville (PPSV)—and were joined by advocacy trainers and discussion facilitators. The 2-day session began with in-depth discussions of the current health care landscape with a focus on PM&R and advocacy. The second day in D.C. was a full day on Capitol Hill interacting with House and Senate members, as well as key congressional and committee staff.

We connected with the fellows to learn about their experience and takeaways. Read the full article in your July issue of The Physiatrist.
