Be an Advocate for Arthritis
Each February the ACR and ARHP have an annual conference,
Advocates for Arthritis, in Washington, DC. Rheumatologists,
health professionals, and patients from across the United States
participate. This year, the issues our advocates took to Capitol Hill
included: prescription drug benefit within the Medicare program,
access to care, and increased funding for research. The day before
the visits to the Hill, members attend an orientation session and
roll-playing sessions designed to model both an ideal and difficult
interaction with legislative staff. If you are interested in attending
next year’s event, or would like further information, contact
Aaron Johnson, Manager, ACR’s Government Affairs Committee
at (404) 633-3777.
You can also become an advocate for arthritis without even
leaving your office by accessing the legislative affairs information
area on the ACR web site. You can view the complete text of
legislative bills, receive alerts, and learn how to lobby by E-mail.
There is even an E-mail letter that you can send to your congressman, just by making a few editorial changes. To visit the site, go
to, then click on Legislative Affairs
on the left hand side, and then click on Legislative Action Center,
Links to other sites, or Become a Member Advocates for Arthritis
