Be an Advocate
Join the Advocacy Movement
Regardless of who you are; consumer; supplier; clinician, manufacturer, or consumer - you have a stake in what happens on Capitol Hill and in your State Houses and in the offices of State and Federal regulators. You need to be an active advocate to assure that consumers with significant disabilities and health issues receive the Complex Rehab Technology they need to help assure their health, function and quality of life. This responsibility belongs to you, not someone else.
Educate your members of CongressHas your local member of Congress signed on to current CRT legislation?
One of the best ways to educate your members of Congress and local Legislators is to set up a visit to your company or clinic to observe and learn first-hand
about what you and the people you serve. Including consumers in these visits provides even more impact.
Making a call to your Member of Congress, local representative or Governor’s office takes a few minutes.
