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 attended orientation sessions 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 http://www.rheumatology.org, 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 Network.
