Day on the Hill

March 7-8, 2023
Washington, D.C.

Be part of the solution. Now more than ever, the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation field needs you to advocate for the valuable care and services you provide to your patients.

  • YOUR Congressional members
  • YOUR voice
  • YOUR patients' voices
  • YOUR administration's voices 
  • YOUR AACVPR advocacy team supporting you each step of the way! 

Join the AACVPR community on Capitol Hill to advocate for cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation services and ask legislators for support for beneficial legislation on Medicare decisions.

No advocacy experience is necessary! Preparation materials will be sent regularly in the weeks leading up to the event and a training meeting the day before visits begin will prepare you to meet with Congress members and make your voice heard. Registration is complimentary and will open in early 2023.
