Capitol Hill Highlights: ACG leaders advocating on your behalf
This week, 100 ACG Governors, members of the ACG Leadership, and Young Physician Leadership Scholars descended on Capitol Hill for a busy day. This year's legislative visits constituted the largest single fly-in in College history, where they met with 300 legislators to bring light to issues impacting your GI practices and our patients. We want to thank each and every one of the participants for taking time away from their practices to serve as a voice for clinical gastroenterology. The event was a great success!
A photo recap of the events:
Remember to contact your ACG Governor on important state and local issues impacting you and your practice.
The ACG Board of Governors is one of the most unique aspects of the American College of Gastroenterology. Governors are ACG Fellows that are elected from the membership of a particular state or region. There are currently 77 Governors across seven different regions in the U.S. and abroad. The Board of Governors acts as a two-way conduit between College leadership and the membership at-large. This helps the College make certain it is meeting the evolving needs of the membership.
