September: Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month
AWARENESS = ADVOCACY
Day of Action
In honor of CSRO’s Rheumatic Disease Awareness Month Day of Action and we are calling on you to join us in our advocacy work!
Since 2003, CSRO has been the rheumatology community’s primary resource when it comes to advocacy, and today we are calling on you to help advocate by raising awareness.
The goal is simple: create awareness with state legislators about how rheumatology patients suffer because they are not protected from utilization management practices. Advocacy = Awareness – take action today using our toolkit below.
DAY OF ACTION: ADVOCACY TOOLKIT
Invite legislators to visit your office
- Hearing firsthand how these issues affect patients and practices is one of the most effective ways to raise awareness with your elected officials.
- Our Action Center will automatically select your state legislators based on your address and has a template message pre-populated so you can easily invite your elected officials to visit your office.
- Email email@example.com if you schedule a meeting, and we will provide you with talking points and information to share!
Follow up by tagging your state legislators in a post
- To help further draw the attention of your elected officials, tweet at them to tell them about the invitation.
- We’ve made it easy – after submitting your invitation for an office visit through our Action Center, the Twitter handles of your state legislators will auto-populate into our template post. With the click of a few buttons, you can easily share it on your social media account.
Spread the word on social media
- Tell your networks that you are advocating to raise awareness and invite them to join you.
- Use our Day of Action image and template text below, and don’t forget to tag @CSROAdvocacy and use #RDAMAwarenessIsAdvocacy
