Legislative


KY-ACC members on the hill advocating at the 2018 #ACCLegConf

About:
ACC Advocacy seeks to advance the College’s mission of improving the cardiovascular wellbeing of the nation through interactions with Congress, federal government agencies, state legislative and regulatory bodies, private insurers, and other policy making groups. By advocating for a quality driven health care system, provider stability, population health and the future of cardiovascular medicine, the ACC is leading the transformation of care. 
 
Kentucky Advocacy Initiatives:
KY-ACC is committed to advancing public policy initiatives that advance access to care as well as improving the health of Kentuckians. To that end we continue to partner with the American Heart Association, Kentucky Medical Association, and other groups to promote a legislative agenda that will achieve these goals.
