ASHT Virtual Capitol Hill Day 2019

On October 2-4, join ASHT for Virtual Capitol Hill Day 2019. The event will be held in conjunction with the ASHT Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C.

Occupational and physical therapy advocates across the country will speak with their Congressional legislators about federal policies that impact access to rehabilitation services and highlight the critical role hand therapists play in helping patients maximize function and manage acute and chronic upper extremity pain.

With more than 100 newly elected representatives and senators, the 116th Congress needs to hear directly from hand therapists like you as they consider key legislation and policy issues impacting the delivery of hand and upper extremity therapy services.
