Doctors of optometry and optometry students describe advocacy participation as:
We need your help to support the bills that help optometry and defeat those that would hurt us. It is a proven fact that lawmakers’ opinions are swayed by their constituents who reach out to them. Advocacy Days are the perfect opportunity to either build or fortify your relationship with lawmakers, which is critical for optometry’s legislative success.
Come one, come all! Whether you are a seasoned advocate or have never met with a lawmaker, come and be a part of history! You will get to meet with your lawmakers to protect the future of optometry. You will learn about legislation and regulations that impact your profession.
We look forward to seeing you at COA's Advocacy Days 2017!
