Attendees will learn the basics of how to make an appointment to meet with Congressional representatives, and how to deliver a unified message about federally funded programs that benefit people with disabilities. Elaine Eisenbaum, MSW will also share her experiences attending the Disability Policy Seminar as an early career professional, as well as provide tips on preparing for and making hill visits.

At the 2015 Seminar, hundreds of disability advocates from around the country will gather to discuss a wide range of public policy issues affecting people with disabilities and their families. We expect the following public policy issues will take center stage: Federal Funding, Medicaid and Community Living, Health Care, Social Security, and Employment and Education.
