HOPA Virtual Hill Day

Capitol hill

Wednesday, May 24th, 2023

HOPA’s 2023 Virtual Hill Day will take place on Wednesday, May 24th! This event will allow advocates a unique opportunity to engage with their members of Congress, especially for those who are not usually able to travel to Washington D.C. Throughout the day, advocates will speak to their elected officials and their staff to discuss issues important to hematology/oncology pharmacists and their patients.

There are members of Congress who need to hear from YOU – their constituents – on the great work that hematology/oncology pharmacy practitioners do and how they help those on their cancer treatment journey.

You should apply if:

  • You are a hematology/oncology pharmacy practitioner,
  • You are a cancer patient or survivor who has experience working with hematology/oncology pharmacists,
  • You can comment on the role hematology/oncology pharmacists play in cancer care.

You will also be paired with at least one other HOPA member who has experience advocating during HOPA’s Hill Days.

Prior to meetings, attendees will receive:

  • Trainings from HOPA staff on how to advocate and what issues to discuss in the meetings,
  • Talking points to assist in conversations during meetings, and
  • Leave behind materials, to continue the conversations with staff after meetings conclude.

Member Stories Submission

During Hill Day, impactful stories need to be shared, not only to provide better understanding of the role of hematology/oncology pharmacists, but to highlight the incredible things that pharmacists do in their individual communities that impact patients on their cancer care journeys.
