Virtual Global Health Day on Capitol Hill
An election year is a particularly important time to assert the value of global health. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CUGH is holding a virtual Global Health Day on Capitol Hill on October 2nd, 2020. This online event will allow participants to engage their Congresspersons on the value of US leadership and investments in global health.
We will focus on members from committees that are responsible for funding US global health programs. Preference will be given to individuals from the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
The meetings will occur from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (ET) on October 2nd. Prime Advocacy, a government relations firm will schedule all engagements. We will do our best to connect attendees with their Senators and House Representatives. Participants will receive a personalized Hill Day agenda, talking points, and corresponding log-in information for their virtual meetings.
