The ASDSA Advocacy team was presented with the 2019 Excellency in Advocacy Award for Excellence in a State Issue Campaign by the Professional Women in Advocacy Conference for its role in the SUNucate initiative.
In partnership with Women in Government Relations, the conference recognizes everyday women advocates with an annual award. Awards were also given in a number of other categories. The Excellence in a State Issue Campaign honors the person or team that has successfully impacted the outcome of a state or local legislative/regulatory problem or opportunity on behalf of a cause, issue, client, organization or coalition.
“I am thrilled that the tireless efforts of ASDSA in advocating for legislation allowing kids to use sunscreen in school have been recognized with such a prestigious award. The lifelong impact this legislation will have on children across the country by teaching sun-safe behavior now cannot be underscored,” said ASDSA President Murad Alam, MD, MBA. “I look forward to the continued success of ASDSA in working to pass this important legislation in other states in 2020.”
