2016 Legislative Conference
ACC’s 2016 Legislative Conference will take place Sept. 11 – 13 at the Fairmont Hotel in Washington, DC.
With implementation and congressional oversight of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) well underway, it is a critical time for ACC members to come to DC to personally deliver cardiology’s message. The 2016 Legislative Conference will provide the inside scoop on regulatory changes, legislative action and the state of cardiology to empower members to become effective advocates for patients and cardiovascular professionals. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear directly from the experts who shape health policy. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet directly with congressional leaders to share ways the cardiovascular community is providing quality, cost-effective, evidence-based care to millions of patients nationwide.
The conference will kick-off on Sunday, Sept. 11 with a special ACC Political Action Committee (ACCPAC)-sponsored reception and dinner featuring leading presidential historian and best-selling author Michael Beschloss. Stay tuned for more information on how to register for this exciting event. On Monday, educational sessions on the hot button issues that impact cardiovascular professionals and patients will arm the entire cardiovascular care team with the information and tools necessary to effect change on both the state and national level. On Tuesday, attendees will head to Capitol Hill for pre-arranged meetings with their congressional offices.
