2022 AADA Legislative Conference
Join the movement to bring dermatology issues to Congress
The Legislative Conference is the biggest opportunity each year for AADA members to discuss top-priority policy issues affecting the specialty and advocate on those issues to members of Congress. Participants will learn about issues and legislation that could affect the specialty's future, receive expert advice on how to get your message heard by legislators, and help advance the AADA's legislative priorities by meeting with members of Congress and their staff.

What you learn
Legislative Conference participants will learn how to turn the experiences of their practices and patients into tangible public policy advancement and relationship building with the members of U.S. Congress.
No experience? No problem!
Attendees do not need to be experts on health policy, the legislative process, or the members of Congress themselves. Participants are coming to Washington, D.C., as experts in dermatology and patient care. At the conference, AADA leaders will be on-hand to mentor your advocacy. In addition, prior to the conference we provide briefings and materials on legislation and training to successfully advocate for the specialty.
Capitol Hill meetings
The AADA schedules all Capitol Hill meetings for attendees. We use your home and office addresses to determine who your members of Congress are and then contact their offices to schedule meetings for you. Before meeting with your members of Congress and their staffers, the AADA will provide you with specific information about legislative priorities, talking points, and other resources.
