Each year, the AACVPR organizes Day on the Hill (DOTH) to show the power the AACVPR community holds when it gathers together to advocate for the cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation services. Building off the success of 2020, where 90 people attended meetings and a total of 4,490 letters were sent to Congress, DOTH will be held virtually March 8-11 2021.
Going virtual in 2021 will allow you to meet with your Senators and Representatives from the comfort of your own home or office!
The two main priorities to focus on will be:
- SOS: Sustaining Outpatient Services Act
- Virtual Supervision and Virtual Delivery of CR/PR/ICR
Our success relies on you and your fellow state CR/PR professionals’ continued dedication to advocacy. Ensure your voice is heard by registering for DOTH today, and start preparing everything you'll need to meet with your Senators and Representatives.
