Take Action

AGA works as an organization, in coordination with other organizations and as a member of a number of coalitions to reach out to Capitol Hill, regulators and payors to ensure that the concerns of GIs are being heard regarding issues that affect our members. However, our impact lies in the strength of our members’ involvement. You can help advocate for quality health care for your patients and influence health-care policy by understanding policies affecting the practice and patients and becoming involved with AGA — by participating in activities or contacting your local officials.
