    Join colleagues from your state for the ACCC Capitol Hill Day (now Virtual!) on Wednesday, May 12, 2021.

    Since it's not logistically possible to organize our in-person Capitol Hill Day this year, ACCC is pleased to offer its members on the cancer care team a new way to experience advocacy trainings, legislative briefings, and Congressional meetings from the comfort of their home or office.

    By using an easy-to-navigate online platform, you will be able to advocate for federal policies that improve access to quality cancer care. And by discussing the challenges that you—and your patients—face, you can help ensure that future legislation reflects the reality of cancer care delivery.

    ACCC's legislative priorities will focus on the Telehealth Modernization Act and the Safe Step Act of 2021, and other opportunities to advocate for bills that closely impact the cancer care landscape.

    No need to be a “policy expert” or familiar with specific legislation. These meetings are an opportunity to share your expertise and put a human face to decisions regarding federal healthcare policies.

    Participation in the ACCC Virtual Capitol Hill Day is exclusive to ACCC members as one valuable benefit of membership. If you are not a member and would like to join, please explore our membership options.
