ACR 2022 Virtual Advocacy Boot Camp
Learning How to Amplify Your Advocacy Voice

March 10, 2022
7–9pm ET
The new year is already off to a fast start from an advocacy and public policy standpoint. Congress is back in session and forty-six state legislatures will convene in 2022. There has already been a wide range of bills introduced in state capitols that directly impact radiology. The need for physician-led advocacy is paramount and as a result, the ACR is pleased to offer a virtual advocacy boot camp!

This two-hour-long virtual advocacy boot camp is specifically tailored for physicians, and you will learn how to become an effective advocate for your profession. During this year’s virtual boot camp, you will hear from ACR staff, your peers and advocacy professionals on a variety of advocacy-related topics. The theme for this year’s advocacy boot camp is “Learning How to Amplify Your Advocacy Voice.”

Topics covered will include:
  • The basics about how to advocate for your profession.
  • How to advocate for evidence-based health policies.
  • How to utilize your knowledge, as a specialty physician, to craft your advocacy message.
Don’t miss out on this chance to hone your advocacy message, interact with your colleagues and earn 2 CME credits.
