In addition to providing advocacy resources to our Members, the NACDD Government Affairs Forum works to educate and engage our representatives and policymakers. Partnering with consultants from Cornerstone Government Affairs, we help steer coordinated legislative goals to improve resources available for chronic disease prevention and control, as well as health promotion efforts.
NACDD Government Affairs Forum monthly calls provide up-to-date information on the status of NACDD advocacy efforts and current policy news from Washington, D.C. On the calls, participants hear from NACDD’s leadership as well as consultants from Cornerstone Government Affairs about NACDD’s efforts to educate and engage legislators and policymakers about improving the resources available for chronic disease prevention. The calls are held every third Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET. To learn more, contact Liz Ruth, State Policy Analyst.
