What are the priority health issues for 2013? To whom do we talk to about these issues and why? In this session we will discuss how we can effectively advocate for the priority health issues that were addressed at the 16th Annual Health Education Advocacy Summit. Then, we will practice our advocacy skills - how to research our issues, how to tailor our “talking points”, how to communicate our “asks”, and how to follow-up.
