Doctors for America North Carolina Advocacy Training In Person
March 4 @ 9:00 am–1:30 pm ESTFree
One in five Americans are covered by Medicaid. Under the Affordable Care Act, Medicaid expansion expanded the Medicaid program to cover almost all adults with income levels up to 138% of the Federal Poverty Level. As of November 2022, 40 states have adopted Medicaid expansion and 11 states have not expanded Medicaid, including North Carolina.
At Doctors for America we believe physicians are the best advocates for putting patients over politics. With the right tools physicians can be public health leaders in implementing change in their communities.
Join Doctors for America for an advocacy training at the North Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants (NCAPA) at 1121 Slater Road in Durham, NC, 27703 on Saturday, March 4 from 9am ET – 1:30pm ET. In this training you’ll learn about that status of Medicaid Expansion from our coalition partner in NC, Care for Carolina, how to have an effective and impactful meeting with a legislator, messaging and media interview best practices, and more.
Please note this training is open to public health advocates in North Carolina only. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. This event is free.
