Advocacy Day

WHA is known for its superior government relations results and impactful advocacy on behalf of its members. The annual WHA Advocacy Day is designed to educate and motivate health care employees, trustees and volunteers on important health care-related issues and to encourage grassroots advocacy opportunities.

Each year, featured national speakers give timely insight to state and federal health care issues, and participating in state legislative visits allows attendees to advocate on behalf of their hospitals.
