Join your colleagues and the American Medical Association March 4-6, 2014, in Washington, D.C., at the National Advocacy Conference (NAC).
Attending the NAC will help empower you to be an advocate for patients, the medical profession and the future of health care. At the conference you will hear from political insiders, industry experts and members of Congress on current efforts being made in health system reform refinement and implementation, and take part in discussions that will help shape the future of the AMA's advocacy efforts and its work to improve the health of the nation.
There will be no Presidents' Forum this year due to hotel space limitations. The Nathan Davis Awards dinner will be held on Wednesday, March 5.
The afternoons of the Wednesday, March 5, and Thurs., March 6, are free of programming to encourage Capitol Hill visits, but Wednesday may be the best option for such, as some Members of Congress may leave Washington on Thursday.
