Each year we set aside several weeks to ramp up messages to Capitol Hill in support of our legislative initiative prior to our PACT team having face-to-face meetings with their Congressional leaders on behalf of the profession.
To find your members of Congress and to learn more about telehealth bills that include respiratory therapists as telehealth providers and respiratory care as a telehealth service, go to AARC Capitol Connection. It’s easy. By putting in your zip code it will bring up the name of your House of Representatives and Senator as well as draft letters prepared for a variety of stakeholders. You don’t have to wait for our Advocacy Day on the Hill to get involved. You can send messages any time it’s convenient for you and you can edit the draft letter that fits you best to make it more personal.
