Participating in the CMSA Virtual Hill Visits program is an effective way to impact policy on Capitol Hill. Advocating for change that will positively affect your ability to improve your patient/client outcomes is critical but can be intimidating and confusing.

To be effective, it is important to understand the environment, the role of legislator verses health policy staffers, your role in policy development, and how CMSA will support your efforts.
