An Inside Look at STS Advocacy: Understanding Your Impact

Learn about the different facets of STS advocacy, what it can do for you, and how you can make a lasting impact on the cardiothoracic surgery specialty. Presenters share how STS advocacy intersects with everyday aspects of members' surgical practices, as well as their personal, professional, and institutional priorities from quality improvement to coding and reimbursement.

The expert panel also shares how members can elevate their concerns to STS, how the Society’s advocacy agenda is shaped, and ways in which the STS-PAC promotes that agenda and advances the causes of the cardiothoracic surgery community. This webinar is an excellent source of information for STS members who want to get involved in advocacy at any stage of their career.
