2017 SIR Grassroots Leadership Program is now taking applications for this year’s program. The two day program will be held May 18, 19 in Washington DC and is open to all residents, fellows, and attendings. Application deadline is April 3. SIR will accept 10 applicants into the program and will provide travel and housing. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn how to advocate on behalf of SIR and take to Capitol Hill to meet with your representatives in Congress. For more information about the program, please see here. https://www.sirweb.org/advocacy-and-outreach/government-affairs/grassroots-leadership-program/
