Why the Patient Voice Matters: Legislator Roundtable Forum

03/23/2022 12:00

Please join Bristol Myers Squibb's U.S. Policy & Government Affairs team for an interactive discussion with state & federal policymakers on the importance of the patient voice in the legislative process.

The forum will provide an opportunity for attendees to hear directly from current legislators as they provide their insights on effective advocacy strategies and engagement with elected officials. During our discussion, our panelists will share what they seek to learn when meeting with advocates, firsthand examples of advocacy campaigns that have impacted their decision-making, tips for virtual advocacy engagement, and advice for any advocate looking to get involved in the legislative process.
