2021 Advocacy Day
Come one come all to one of the greatest days we have to advocate for Healthcare by attending the VIRTUAL , 2021 advocacy day on April 14, 2021, from the comfort of your Home!
As always a wonderful platform of speakers will be provided to include keynote speaker, Frank Sesno, and international journalist of 30 years who is reported from around the world and known for hosting CNN. Certainly one of the highlights of this day is the presentation from a panel of bipartisan legislators who will discuss various legislative issues. An invitation has been extended to Governor Evers for a brief message.
Finally, we all will have the opportunity for a virtual visit with our very own Legislator, or Representative, about Healthcare issues in Our state.
There is No Cost to attend.
