Policy Corner: Advocacy Symposium in Baltimore
Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Why is advocacy important? What bills are currently in play that will affect the physical activity landscape? How can you reach your local elected officials?

These questions and more will be answered in an advocacy session on Thursday, June 3, during the ACSM Annual Meeting. The first portion of the symposium will recap ACSM’s advocacy efforts; why advocacy is important for ACSM and sports medicine/exercise science professionals; and overview the differences between federal and local advocacy.

The second part of the symposium will feature hands-on advocacy training. Attendees will gain a better understanding of the role of the scientist/clinician as an advocate and receive an advocacy toolkit. A question-and-answer session will ensure attendees leave the symposium with a full understanding of how to serve as a physical activity advocate.

Interested in receiving the toolkit if you can’t attend the symposium? E-mail policy@acsm.org for a copy.
