Jan. 24, 2018 to Jan. 26, 2018
Sacramento, CA

This seminar focuses on health care policy and legislation and honing communication and presentation skills.  Fellows build the leadership skills and understanding needed to improve health care policy by learning techniques to efficiently research legislation and by meeting with state legislators and legislative staffers. Focusing on communication and presentation skills gives participants the opportunity to refine a persuasive message and the way it’s presented.
