Unanimously endorsed by AcademyHealth’s Committee on Advocacy and Public Policy, the Executive Committee, and the Board of Directors in December 2020, this documents outlines AcademyHealth’s advocacy priorities.
AcademyHealth is a leading national organization serving the fields of health services and policy research and the professionals who produce and use this important work.
