ASHA members enjoy—and are proud of—what they do. So, why not advocate for yourself and the clients you serve? ASHA, with the help of some volunteers, has developed a new advocacy webpage designed to make advocacy easy.
The webpage includes five new videos of ASHA members sharing their advocacy stories:
  • Theresa Rodgers, ASHA vice president for government relations and public policy, explains the importance of advocating.

  • Tammy Emerson talks about the opportunities to learn and grow in advocacy by serving on an ASHA advocacy network.

  • Jennifer Schultz and Katheryn Boada discuss their experiences advocating for state licensure in South Dakota and Colorado.

  • Stuart Trembath expresses the payoff of taking the time to build a relationship with his congressman.

Getting involved in advocacy can take just a few minutes of your time and make a huge difference. Take the first step by signing up on ASHA's Take Action site. When new issues arise, you will receive an alert; you can easily and quickly personalize the message, which is then submitted directly to your congressional representatives. Don't miss your chance to make a difference.
