Announcing the SSAT Lobby Day at the Annual Meeting at DDW
The SSAT is pleased to announce a new advocacy opportunity for its U.S. members during the 2015 Annual Meeting at DDW in Washington, DC. On Tuesday, May 19, 2015, the SSAT will be hosting its first ever Lobby Day event. U.S. Members of the SSAT will have the opportunity to interact with their home and work Congressional members and staff and advocate on issues that impact their surgical patients and their surgical practices.
This unique opportunity will be available for 25 SSAT members (U.S. members only). Those participants will be able to attend an Advocacy Boot Camp during DDW to prepare for their visits, and then on Tuesday will go on scheduled office visits.
There are limited spots so sign up now! Please contact Renee Russo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
