Advocacy – Medical Alley Association

Advocacy & Policy

The Medical Alley Association advocates for our community on a state and national level. We work every day to advance policies that support the Global Epicenter of Health Innovation and Care®. 

Stay up to date with what is impacting the healthcare community with our policy and advocacy newsletter, At The Table.

bringing decision makers Together

Public policy is a serious business. Patient access to innovation, regulations, taxes, workforce, infrastructure, investment opportunities and many other critical factors that affect the future of healthcare are driven by public policymakers. We deliver the expertise, influence and engagements with public policymakers to shape the evolution of healthcare.

You make a difference. We deliver your story. The Medical Alley Association brings your voice and your issues directly to decision makers in St. Paul and Washington, DC. As a trusted association with deep relationships, we work with public officials to influence, educate and ultimately build strong coalitions around the significance of our healthcare innovators.

2021 Legislative Year In Review

The 2021 legislative session and subsequent special session have come to an end. After what has been roughly 18 months of regular and special sessions at the Minnesota State Capitol, legislators and stakeholders have just begun a much-needed break. Despite the virtual nature of session and partisan gridlock in St. Paul, our team is pleased to report that the Medical Alley Association had one of its most successful sessions to date.

Our legislative wrap-up dives into all the details of this year’s regular and special session. We provide insights on the political dynamics in St. Paul, unpack critical policy and spending bills, and report on the status of Medical Alley Association’s policy priorities post-adjournment.
