The Regional Health Policy Advocacy (RHPA) Award!
Initiated in 2009, the RHPA Award will recognize one chapter in each region for it's contributions to health policy advocacy. And every member can easily participate in winning this award and help in shaping the national healthcare debate.
A chapter earns RHPA points for every activity completed on the 2011 RHPA Award Criteria (see link below). Many of these activities can be performed by individual members. However, our chapter Health Policy Representative, Sharon Bunnell, must know what you have done.
Click on the link below, to see what activities that you as an indvidual chapter member can perform, and once completed, e-mail Sharon Bunnell @ firstname.lastname@example.org and describe the activity completed and when. Completed activities are retro-active to January 1, 2011. So, if you wrote a letter/e-mail to your congressman last month, e-mail Debra the name of the legislator contacted, the date and the topic to earn RHPA points!
