The Advocacy in Action Workshop is an opportunity for medical students to receive virtual grassroots advocacy skills training that will equip them to become effective advocates and leaders in medicine.

Register for the webinars on Oct. 25 and Oct. 26 to hear from expert speaker panels, participate in advocacy skills workshops, learn about health care issues, and how you can actively advocate for patients, providers and communities.

On the third day, Oct. 27, workshop attendees are invited to put to use the skills they learned and resources provided to advocate for specific issues they care most about.
