This year's ASH Grassroots Network Session provides a forum for interested members to: • Hear in-depth analysis of the recent election and learn about potential impacts on health care and hematology by the new Congress and Administration. • Learn how to participate in ASH’s advocacy efforts, communicate with Congress and the White House, become effective advocates for hematology, and discuss the Society’s legislative and regulatory priorities. • Discover the Society’s 2020 advocacy accomplishments and get a preview of the Society’s 2021 advocacy agenda. The featured speaker is Luke Hartig, the Senior Vice President for Product Strategy and Consulting at National Journal, a non-partisan policy news and current events organization in Washington, DC. Mr. Hartig will present a post-election analysis and his predictions about how the outcome of the election may affect issues impacting hematology research and practice, including access to and coverage of health care and funding for biomedical research.
