One click to advocate

April 2019 – Vol. 38, No. 3

Effective grassroots advocacy starts with you! AAO-HNS members can reinforce the Academy’s legislative efforts on Capitol Hill by calling, emailing, and tweeting their members of Congress. This additional layer of constituent-based outreach amplifies the specialty’s position when Congress debates major healthcare issues.

We appreciate the demands on your schedule, so the AAO-HNS is making it even easier to make your voice heard on the issues that matter most to the specialty. With our new grassroots advocacy software, it only takes one click to make an impact.

Past Congressional outreach by AAO-HNS members has truly made a difference. Last year, several Capitol Hill offices advised that their decision to not support or co-sponsor critical legislation opposed by the AAO-HNS was due to the direct messages from YOU—the otolaryngologists in their districts and states.

Interested? Visit the Academy’s new grassroots advocacy website ( to send your Members of Congress a pre-written email with just one click. Each call to action includes important background information on the legislation/issue and an email which pre-populates once the web form is completed.
