AOA Keypersons Network

Protecting the Profession at the Federal Level by Achieving Legislative Goals in Congress

With so much focus in Washington on Healthcare Reform today, political activism at the federal level is imperative to secure optometry's future. Advocacy efforts on Capitol Hill by AOA Leadership, its Government Affairs Team and top notch lobbyist Jon Hymes continue to prove invaluable, increasing awareness about eye and vision health among legislators and elevating the profession of optometry to new heights. However, they cannot do it alone! Each state Affiliate must do its part to support AOA advocacy efforts in D. C. and Maryland takes the job seriously. Each year MOA member ODs join students of optometry from Maryland in the nation's capitol during the AOA Congressional Advocacy Conference (CAC). Together students and optometrists walk the HIll, talking to Maryland Representatives and Senators in support of AOA advocacy efforts. We cannot afford to not be involved so please join the fight on Capitol hill as a federal keyperson. Interested parties should email the MOA Keyperson Program Chair,
Dr. Kevin Johnson.
