This Interest Group acts as an educational outlet for those wishing to learn or enhance their professional development skills related to advocacy for health policy. Members of this Interest Group have a role to play in communicating the value of health services research to key stakeholders and decision makers in both the public and private sectors as well as to the broader AcademyHealth membership.
Topics covered throughout the year may focus on advocacy tools, such as coalition-building, sign-on letters, amicus briefs, and grassroots mobilization, or on key issues which the Interest Group membership has an interest in advancing in some capacity.
