Advocacy Toolkit

Advocacy is defined simply as “active support.”

Welcome to the DNA Advocacy Toolkit!

The DNA’s Health Policy and Advocacy Committee has partnered with Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP to assemble documents that you can use as a tool to have your voice heard by your local legislation and Washington, DC. We hope this “toolkit” serves as an additional resource for DNA members to better advocate on behalf of their patients.
