Re: Knox-Keene Requirements for Delta Dental of California
Change begins at the local level. You do not need to be an expert in politics to make a difference. Elected officials in Sacramento, Washington, D.C. and locally throughout California want to hear from their constituents, and your stories can make a difference for legislators facing tough decisions on complicated health care issues.
Every cause needs powerful champions to advocate on its behalf. You can help shape the future of dentistry and work toward political change by taking a leadership position. CDA can provide the tools you need to be an effective key contact for your district representatives. Click the link below to learn more about how you can get involved in grassroots advocacy with CDA.
If you are interested in becoming a key contact, please contact Michell Nguyen, CDA senior public affairs specialist.
