State Leadership

State Leadership Part 1

This is the first video of two about our State Leadership Program.  It gives the viewer some insight how to sign up, get involved and outlines the basic steps one would need to take to get involved. 

State Leadership Part 2

 This video takes our members through the first step in the overall process of participating as a State Leader.  In our video "How to Find a Bill", we introduce members to the process by which they can obtain copies of the bills that are being brought forth in their state. This enables the member to begin to engage in the democratic process.  

Advocate of the Month

Betty Miserendino

January 2020

Betty has consistently shown dedication and enthusiasm in her advocacy efforts. Often, Betty will take it upon herself to write to media outlets to educate them on the impact their sensationalized and propagandized stories are having on the patient population.  She had multiple op-eds published in her local paper.  In addition, she regularly participates in the CIAAG Calls to Action.  Finally, she has met with her local congressman and continues to maintain contact with their offices to ask for palliative care protections to be extended to the patient population via CIAAG's proposed Palliative Care Bill, Equal & Fair Access to Palliative Care.


February 2020

We would like to recognize CIAAG Member, Susan, as Advocate of the Month for February 2020. Susan was the first to step forward and volunteer her time to pull legislation for her home state. In addition, she is working with the CIAAG team to review the proposed bills and testify at her statehouse to oppose/support portions of the proposed legislation as a part of CIAAG's State Leadership Program.
