The Government Relations Representatives (GRR) group advances nonpartisan advocacy for academic medicine by providing a forum for federal relations staff at medical schools, teaching hospitals, and academic societies to consult with AAMC staff on evolving federal legislative and regulatory issues, initiatives, and strategies. The GRR meets three times a year in Washington, D.C. (typically in early March, June, and September).
