Government Relations Affinity Group (GRAG)Starting at 12:00 pm Ending at 1:30 pm
This group, made up of the senior government relations staff from member patient advocacy organizations (also known as voluntary health agencies or VHAs), helps set the NHC policy agenda and promotes the exchange of ideas and sharing of common solutions among members. GRAG meets monthly to work on policy issues and convenes an annual Washington Representatives Retreat, which allows staff to focus on important strategic, operational, and policy development issues.
