Request a HEAT recruitment kitWhat is a “Grassroots 101” program? It is a way to learn about the policies being developed in our state and nation’s Capitols and the best ways to speak up with your elected officials on those issues.

The Grassroots 101 program centers around a presentation developed by WHA’s Jenny Boese for your hospital’s employees, leadership teams, boards or volunteers, and can include the following topics:

Legislative issues updates (state and federal)
Past presentations have focused on health care reform, state budget process and more

Grassroots training
Past presentations have included training on effectively communicating with elected officials, the importance of grassroots engagement, testifying at legislative hearings and more

Legislative process
Past presentations have included a look at the state legislative process

Presentations can be tailored to the specific needs of your hospital group. You won’t want to miss this opportunity to engage your hospital on the issues that directly impact your community, your patients and you.
