SLI attendees will have the opportunity to advocate for the profession of pharmacy on Capitol Hill. Prior to SLI, APhA will send out information on scheduling visits. 

To prepare all attendees to meet with their Congressional members, APhA-ASP will host two webinars on the logistics, talking points, and tips for making your meeting a success. 


Preparing for Your Hill Visit: Webinars

APhA-ASP Summer Leadership Institute attendees will participate in a two-part series. During this webinar, the APhA Government Affairs team will give you insight into your important role in advocacy, updates on provider status and key legislation, how to schedule your visit, and logistics for coming to Capitol Hill.
