ASAM Hill Day 2019

2019 Hill Day


Join Your Colleagues for ASAM Hill Day

September 16-17, 2019

Be the Voice of Addiction Medicine. Your advocacy is needed to ensure legislative efforts are grounded in the science of addiction and informed by your real-world clinical experience.


This is an exclusive ASAM member only event.

Learn about ASAM's Legislative Agenda

ASAM's three core advocacy principles revolve around encouraging policymakers to TEACH addiction medicine by expanding and strengthening our workforce and dispelling stigma, STANDARDIZE the delivery of addiction medicine so that more patients receive high-quality, evidence-based care, and COVER addiction medicine in a way that expands patient access to coordinated, comprehensive care. For Hill Day, ASAM has prepared a list of actions that policymakers can take to support each of these issue areas.
