Women In Government was pleased to host the Fifth Annual Healthcare Summit, held November 13-15, 2014, in Washington, DC. This comprehensive three-day event covered a wide range of issues including women’s health, diabetes, childhood obesity, healthcare reform, chronic disease prevention and management, health IT, and recent innovations in healthcare. The panels included nationally known expert speakers discussing the issues with an emphasis on what state policymakers can do to improve the lives of their constituents. We had a total of 48 state legislators from across the country attend.
Join Women In Government as we recognize legislators from the past, present, and future, as well as get a special taste of regional cuisine and libations from our 2015 host states: Colorado, Kansas, and South Carolina.
In honor of World Hepatitis Day (July 28), Women In Government (WIG) is launching an updated Hepatitis C Education & Awareness toolkit. The toolkit provides information regarding quick facts about hepatitis C, sample OpEd and press releases, past and present legislation, and what you can do to raise awareness and get tested. WIG also urges state and federal lawmakers to enact policies that help address the nationwide hepatitis C epidemic.
