American Society of Hematology

ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute

The nomination period for the 2017 Advocacy Leadership Institute is now closed. Please check back in early 2018.

ASH is committed to educating its members on how to become effective advocates for hematology research and practice. Since 2011, the ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute has provided additional opportunities for ASH members to learn about advocacy, health policy, and the legislative process and to become engaged in the Society’s activities. 

The seventh annual Advocacy Leadership Institute will take place September 27-28, 2017, in Washington, DC. This two-day leadership workshop is an opportunity for ASH members who wish to gain a better understanding of the Society and its activities, and to learn about legislation and health policy affecting hematology research and practice.

The first day of the Institute will focus on learning about the legislative process and health policy; it will include training in the policy-making process, advocacy, and media relations. Sessions will feature guest speakers from Congress, the Administration, and the National Institutes of Health, as well as other health agency officials. On the second day, participants will visit their respective congressional delegation on Capitol Hill to apply what was learned on the first day.


If you have any questions about the ASH Advocacy Leadership Institute, please contact ASH Legislative Advocacy Manager Tracy Roades at or (202) 776-0544.
