A panel of elected officials will share perspectives and strategies for effective policy advocacy. Three current policy debates will be presented by local experts as case studies: farm to school, antibiotics in animal agriculture and healthy food access. 

Participants will be engaged in small groups to learn and practice advocacy approaches on these case study issues, including preparation and delivery of testimony, media interviews and persuasive writing.

The Food Matters Training is approved for 5.5 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM and is organized by Oregon Physicians for Social Responsibility, Health Care Without Harm and Kaiser Permanente Northwest.
