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 as part of the ASH Recruitment and Retention Initiative 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.
The second annual ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute took place on September 12-13, 2012, in Washington, DC. This two-day leadership workshop was a unique opportunity for ASH members gain better understanding of the Society and its activities, as well as legislation and health policy affecting hematology research and practice.
