American Society of Hematology

ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute

ASH is committed to educating its members on how to become effective advocates for hematology research and practice. The ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute was created in 2011 to provide additional opportunities for ASH members to learn more about advocacy, health policy, the legislative process and to become engaged in the Society’s activities.

This two-day leadership workshop is an exciting opportunity for ASH members who wish to gain a better understanding of the Society and its activities and to learn about legislation and health policy affecting hematology research and practice. Participants in past years’ Advocacy Leadership Institutes have helped play an active role in ASH’s advocacy efforts.

The first day of the Institute focuses on learning about the legislative process and health policy. Sessions feature guest speakers from Congress and the Administration, including the National Institutes of Health as well as other health agency officials. On the second day participants visit their congressional delegation on Capitol Hill to apply what was learned on the first day.

The nomination period for the 2014 ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute is now closed. Please visit this page in late spring 2015 for dates and information on the nomination process for the 2015 Advocacy Leadership Institute.
