Thanks to ASH’s advocacy efforts and the ASH Grassroots Network, issues important to the future of hematology have been brought to the attention of the U.S. Congress and federal agencies. The ASH Grassroots Network Lunch provides a forum for interested members to learn how they can participate in ASH’s advocacy efforts, communicate with Congress, become effective advocates for hematology, and discuss the Society’s legislative and regulatory priorities. An overview of the Society’s 2022 advocacy accomplishments and a preview of the Society’s 2023 advocacy agenda, as well as a discussion about the potential impact of the 2022 midterm elections on policy related to hematology, will also be provided.
