ATA Federal Action Center
Patient choice and healthcare equality must become a top priority of our nation's policymakers. One of the most effective means of influencing policymakers is the collective voice of the ATA membership. When Members of Congress hear directly from you, it is highly impactful and makes a powerful statement. This may influence their policy position or even the details of legislation.
