Voices for IR is SIR's grassroots advocacy program designed to amplify our communications on issues affecting interventional radiologists nationwide. Voices for IR allows member volunteers to serve as an extension of SIR's advocacy team to help achieve our legislative and regulatory goals.
Get involved in grassroots advocacy
Grassroots advocacy involves SIR volunteer members contacting their local, state, or federal officials about certain issues that affect interventional radiology. In contrast to direct lobbying, grassroots advocacy is citizen-based activism. Grassroots advocates are individuals who are willing to act online, on the phone or by mail to contact their elected officials. Through education and training, grassroots advocates can learn to collaborate directly with elected officials to promote interventional radiology. The goal of Voices for IR is to increase the shared voice of interventional radiology in government and policy settings.
The Society of Interventional Radiology's government relations and health policy staff work to further the policy and regulatory interests of society members by advocating on their behalf before Congress, regulatory and federal agencies and the White House.Learn more
