Why the Patient Voice Matters

Recently Bristol Myers Squibb’s U.S. Policy & Government Affairs team held an interactive discussion with state & federal policymakers on the importance of the patient voice in the legislative process.

The forum provided an opportunity for attendees to hear directly from current legislators as they provided their insights on effective advocacy strategies and engagement with elected officials. During the discussion, the panelists shared what they seek to learn when meeting with advocates, first-hand examples of advocacy campaigns that have impacted their decision-making, tips for virtual advocacy engagement, and advice for any advocate looking to get involved in the legislative process.
