Join KHA on a Summer Washington Advocacy Trip
Monday, June 11, 2018 8:14 AM
KHA members are invited to join staff on an Advocacy Trip to Washington on July 12-13.
Thanks to those who have already indicated that they would participate in
this trip. With attacks on the 340B Drug program, Medicaid DSH Cuts and Opioid and
Behavioral Health Treatment under Medicaid being dealt with by this
Congress, it is imperative that Kentucky hospitals stay in constant contact with the Senators and Congressmen representing the state in Washington.
Participants will travel to Washington on the morning of July 12, arriving for a
lunch briefing at AHA and have meetings on Capitol Hill with Senators
and Congressmen that afternoon. On the morning of July 13, there will be more Capitol Hill delegation appointments and the day will conclude by hosting the
health staff of Kentucky's congressional delegation for a lunch briefing at 11:30
a.m. Members can depart after 1:00 p.m. (ET).
Members are requested to make their own room reservations at the Washington Court Hotel, 525 New Jersey Avenue, NW,
Washington, D.C. (855-372-8142, there is not a room block there). Please
make your own travel plans.
If you are able to join the advocacy trip, please contact Claire Arant at KHA (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you have any questions, please contact Sarah S. Nicholson at KHA (email@example.com).
