Nebraska Advocacy Workshop
Saturday, February 16th, 2019 | 9:00 am- 3:00 pm | Omaha Marriott
Nebraska NHF is part of NHF's State Based Advocacy Coalition and is actively working on growing our advocacy program into a meaningful, year round advocacy venture. We understand that this cause is not limited to one day of legislative visits, but something that our organization needs to keep in the forefront of our work throughout the year. In 2019, we are adding an advocacy workshop the month before Bleeding Disorders Awareness month. We are inviting local senators to speak to us about effective communication, maintaining year round relationships with our law makers and what the 2019 legislative calendar looks like for Nebraska. We will also be speaking about the changing landscape of healthcare, nationally and locally. Nebraska voted to expand Medicaid in 2018 and this is a great win for our community but it comes with it's own challenges of implementing. Attendees will work on telling their story, fine tuning their elevator speech and practicing to meet with senators both in Lincoln and in Washington DC.
Funding for this workshop is being provided by Pfizer.
Hotels on Friday, February 15th are available for those traveling more than 120 miles to attend. Childcare will not be provided.
