Think your letters to Congress don’t work? They do!

As Virtual Lobby Week gets underway as a prelude to Political Advocacy Contact Team (PACT) visits to Congress on March 18, we know they are making a difference.

Cheryl West, director of government affairs, explains that in today’s political environment, it is difficult to obtain a meeting with members of Congress. Your letters help pave the way for better access to these decision-makers and their legislative assistants who deal with health issues.

Keep those emails coming! It’s easy by using the AARC Capitol Connection email system.
