About the ACC Legislative Conference
2017 Legislative Conference
Save the date for the 2017 Legislative Conference: Sept. 11-13 in Washington, DC
With implementation and congressional oversight of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) in full swing, 2017 is a critical time for ACC members to come to DC to personally deliver cardiology’s message. The 2017 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. Attendees will hear directly from the experts who shape health policy and will have the 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 with a special reception and dinner hosted by the ACC Political Action Committee. 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.
