Advocacy All-Stars

All Stars (Sept. 4, 2020) – This week, the Kansas Hospital Association will begin periodically recognizing members who have reached out to candidates and legislators at both the state and federal level to make the voice of Kansas hospitals heard. KHA provides a variety of opportunities to meet policymakers, but we know our hospitals are working hard to develop those relationships on their own as well. Please let KHA know when you have reached out to your elected officials, and we will add you to the Advocacy All-Star roster!

Our latest All-Stars reached out to Tracey Mann (via Zoom), Kristen O'Shea (via a hospital visit), and Senator Jerry Moran (via hospital visit):
