CHA President Extends Invitation to Health Policy Legislative Day

CHA President/CEO C. Duane Dauner recently extended a personal invitation encouraging hospital leaders to attend Health Policy Legislative Day, CHA’s annual statewide advocacy program to be held March 15-16 in Sacramento. The event is an opportunity for hospital CEOs and government relations executives to inform lawmakers of the impact proposed legislation would have on hospitals and patients in their communities.

“It is important that elected officials hear directly from people in their district about what legislation means for hospitals and patients, and ask them to vote in support of hospitals,” said Dauner. 

The event features a number of activities on Tuesday, March 15, including a welcome reception to kick off the program, a new participant briefing for members interested in learning about the legislative process and CHA’s advocacy activities; and a team leader briefing to help members prepare for the legislative visits. Wednesday’s agenda includes a breakfast reception with the legislators; an education program featuring Emmy award-winning broadcast journalist Hugh Hewitt as a keynote speaker; and legislative visits at the State Capitol.
