2022 Annual Urology Advocacy Summit Recap
Thank you to all that joined us for the 5th AUA Summit in Washington, DC last week. More than 275 attendees registered for the Summit this year, including over a dozen patient advocates and more than 65 medical students, residents, and fellows.
The conference kicked off with Major Garrett as the keynote speaker and attendees went on to participate in 12 educational sessions and hear from four Congressional speakers. AUA Summit attendees held almost 215 virtual Capitol Hill visits with a handful in-person on Capitol Hill. Attendees enjoyed three networking receptions, including Monday night’s Grand Reception at the National Archives Museum.
Before the AUA Summit began, we held committee and Council meetings as well as the 2022 Patient Advocacy Connections Program. We are also pleased to announce that the AUAPAC surpassed its fundraising goal for the AUA Summit and, thanks to the generosity of AUAPAC donors, raised $40,000 for candidates.
Our fantastic attendees appreciated the relevance of the five legislative asks, remarked on “feeling empowered” at the conference, and called it “the best Summit yet.” We hope you will save the date for the6th Annual Urology Advocacy Summit on February 27 – March 1, 2023 at the Capital Hilton in Washington, DC.
