Building Advocacy Capacity

Consumer advocacy at the state and local level is a powerful force for change in the health care delivery system. The Center works with consumers and their advocates on the ground by providing resources and strategic assistance to increase their impact.

Consumer advocacy will drive much of the change in the health care delivery system, especially for vulnerable populations. The Center works with consumers and their advocates on the ground by providing resources and strategic assistance to increase their impact.

We help state and local advocates engage in the work of moving toward people-centered care and we help them understand the intricacies of health system change. But we don’t stop there. We move beyond education by implementing our tested advocacy model to build advocates’ skills and power to establish an effective voice at all levels of the health care system.

We are proud to partner with a wide range of dedicated and highly effective organizations around the country, as described below.
