Influencing Public Policy: Enhancing the Voice of Essential Hospital Advocates

The 2015 Government Relations Academy will enhance the federal advocacy skills of government relations professionals. Over the course of nine months, members of the class will:

  • advance their understanding of key federal legislative and regulatory issues;
  • leverage communications strategies and tools with a communications colleague from their hospital;
  • develop and conduct an advocacy campaign to achieve a legislative victory for their hospital; and
  • build their professional network with government relations peers and seasoned mentors from essential hospitals.

The 2015 Government Relations Academy includes three in-person sessions:

Session 1: Essential Hospital Issues: Key Opportunities and Challenges
