Public Health Improvement
Physicians are uniquely suited to advocate for the improvement of the public’s health. Your Advocacy Resource Center has developed a multi-pronged campaign that provides advocacy materials focused on public health issues including but not limited to: alcohol, obesity, public safety, safe vaccination, tobacco use, and wellness and prevention. Below is a sampling of the state advocacy tools that exist on these issues and more. Please contact Carrie Armour, JD, Senior Legislative Attorney to discuss this campaign in more detail.
