Attendees spend an engaging 2.5 days in skill-building workshops designed to develop and hone their advocacy skills, with the final day of the Summit spent visiting officials on Capitol Hill.

Sessions provides updates on priority areas from a diverse group of public health, education, and health equity experts.

“With the support of the conference, my summit attendees, and my advisor, I could go through my senator meetings with confidence in the knowledge and skills I had recently acquired. I am ecstatic to motivate others to attend a future Advocacy Summit to better themselves as future health educators.”
