Additionally, grantee experiences with legislative visits, the implications of potential policy changes in Washington, and strategies for having an effective meeting will be presented. NHCHC staff will partner with conference attendees who are familiar with legislative meetings to schedule and coordinate meetings for other attendees, and the health policy organizer will be available for the six weeks prior to the conference for further support.
