Grassroots Advocacy

Become a Member of Project 535

Successful legislative advocacy starts with a solid grassroots foundation. To ensure the message of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery is heard broadly on Capitol Hill, the AAO-HNS launched PROJECT 535 in 2015. Our goal is to recruit a “key contact” for each U.S. Senate and House Congressional seat to improve our outreach to federal legislators when major healthcare issues are debated by Congress. The commitment is minimal, but the impact is immense. Sign-up today to join this exciting program!

State Trackers

Involvement at the State level is extremely important as we advocate for otolaryngology-friendly legislation. The AAO-HNS State Trackers work in tandem with local otolaryngology societies and state medical societies to follow legislation at the State level.

The AAO-HNS In-district Grassroots Outreach (I-GO) program is on a roll!  In-district events help ensure lawmakers are well-versed on the specialty’s legislative priorities via first-hand, local interactions with Academy members. It’s not too late to plan your I-GO meeting.
