In this CTSNet roundtable, Dawn Hui of UT Health San Antonio, Texas, moderates a discussion on advocacy within the cardiothoracic surgery specialty. She is joined by Keith Naunheim of Saint Louis University in Missouri, John H. Calhoon of the UT Health San Antonio, Texas, Ourania Preventza of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas, Seth Wolf of the University of Vermont, and Courtney Yohe, director of government relations for the Society of Thoracic Surgeons in Washington, D.C. They discuss what advocacy means to them, the impact of advocacy on the specialty, and ways cardiothoracic surgeons can have a direct impact on federal policy.
