SGIM Advocacy Day 2019

HIll Day 2018 - CO.jpg Join SGIM for Advocacy Day 2019 at the SGIM Annual Meeting

The SGIM 2019 Annual Meeting will take place    May 8-11, 2019 in Washington, DC.  Make advocacy an important part of your meeting experience and join your SGIM colleagues for a day of advocacy on Wednesday, May 8 on Capitol Hill.

Meeting participants will have the option to register to take part in SGIM Advocacy Day when registering for the SGIM annual meeting. Congressional meetings may be scheduled at your own convenience (based on availability)  throughout the day on May 8.  All Congressional meetings MUST be made by the participant.

SGIM will provide talking points, logistical information, and an Advocacy 101 webinar on April 12 to help members orient themselves to their advocacy experience.  Additionally, participants will be matched with an "SGIM Advocacy Guide" - a more senior member who has participated in advocacy before and who can answer questions and serve as a mentor for the experience.  Participants may also choose to meet in the hotel lobby at the end of the day to exchange experiences and discuss their Congressional visits. The SGIM Advocacy Guides will help arrange the details of this casual gathering.

"It is incredibly fun and rewarding. A critical part of being a general internist in the 21st century."
