AZ SLI stands for “Arizona Student Lobbying Initiative”. This is an opportunity for students to join forces with the AzNMA and educate and negotiate with Legislators about our medicine and scope of practice. It serves as an introduction to novice leaders and teaches them about the political process, public speaking and current event issues within our profession while being a tool for further development of these skills to more politically seasoned individuals.  Find our event on Facebook!
