August Recess: Making the Most of In-District Meetings & Online Advocacy

As a health care professional who treats addiction, you understand the impact that federal and state legislation has on your practice and your patients. At ASAM, we are committed to elevating the voices of addiction medicine among key policymakers. ASAM's new grasstops program, the Addiction Medicine Action Network (AMAN), aims to leverage members’ advocacy relationships with lawmakers and expand member's advocacy skills.

In this third on-demand training for AMAN members, ASAM’s Chief Advocacy Officer, Kelly Corredor, will provide an overview of how to connect with one’s members of Congress, find out about in-district events, and set-up an in-district meeting to discuss ASAM issues.

Interested in joining the Network? Whether you have existing advocacy relationships with lawmakers or simply want to develop new ones, consider applying for the ASAM Addiction Medicine Action Network (AMAN). As a member of AMAN, you will have access to advanced advocacy trainings and individualized advocacy support, and your work may be amplified and recognized through various communication channels.
