Public Policy Forum

The Digestive Disease National Coalition, the leading public policy advocacy organization in our nation's capital for persons affected with digestive diseases, invites you to participate in our 26th Annual Public Policy Forum on March 6 - 7, 2016 in Washington, DC. 

This annual event brings together patients, health care providers, industry representatives, lawmakers and their legislative staff for two days of educational programs, legislative updates and advocacy training. Our objective is to brief participants from around the country on Federal health care legislation and policy and provide the opportunity to educate Members of Congress on issues of concern to the digestive disease community.

With newly elected members and appointed leadership in the 114th Congress, you must make your voice heard on Capitol Hill to ensure that any upcoming reforms improve health outcomes for the digestive disease patient community. 

Don't miss this opportunity to shape our nation's future health care policy.
