Join KHA in Recognizing Kansas Legislators

Advocacy Day  newsletterThe level of support that we received from the legislature this year was impressive. We are pleased to have heard from many Kansas Hospital Association members who are willing to host an event to recognize our legislators who had a 100 percent voting record in favor of our positions. We also are eager to publically thank these legislators for voting in support of the health of their community, as we need their support to continue in 2018.

To assist your hospital in a local recognition event, KHA is providing a communications and planning toolkit that is now available online. Please email Lorri Dean or Cindy Samuelson as soon as possible if you are willing to participate and include who you would like to recognize and when. KHA staff will be happy to attend your event as our schedules allow, and we will highlight your event on social media as well. Our goal is that all 95 legislators will receive public recognition sometime before the end of the year.

Thanks again for your continued support of our advocacy efforts. Please contact us at (785) 233-7436, should you have any questions.
