Advocacy and Health Policy Events

ONS Capitol Hill Days

The annual ONS Capitol Hill Days is a two-day education and advocacy conference where members meet to network and learn about a variety of advocacy issues so they can carry the message to their elected officials on Capitol Hill on the final day of the event. This presents an incredible opportunity for ONS members and their chapters to experience how the legislative and regulatory process affects nurses. Equally important is the training that members will bring back to their chapter to help ONS reinforce its health policy agenda in local congressional districts.

Capitol Hill Days has become a must-attend event for any oncology nurse interested in health policy.
