ADVOCACY (noun) – public support for or recommendation of a particular cause or policy 

NJANA is extremely active in the realm of advocacy, fighting for the rights of our members to preserve our ability to practice in New Jersey, and working in conjunction with the AANA on national issues.

Our advocacy efforts include visiting with and educating lawmakers, providing clear and helpful information about anesthesia issues to the public, and organizing grassroots responses and letter-writing campaigns to encourage lawmakers to take action.

We also use Voter Voice to help our members quicly and easily connect with lawmakers on pending legislation to ensure that every one of you has a chance to be heard on local, state and national level issues. Click here to visit our Voter Voice Campaigns.

From time to time we will also survey our members to see how particular issues are impacting their lives and the ability to practice to help us formulate strategies for advocacy efforts.  If you would like to become part of our advocacy corps please fill out the form at the bottom of the page.
