Coalition to Stop Flu, an advocacy group dedicated to stopping flu deaths, has retained government relations firm LKB Strategies to lobby Capitol Hill on healthcare- and budget-related issues.
Led by former Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle, Coalition to Stop Flu advocates for proactive federal policies and increased funding in an effort to raise awareness among policymakers about the threat of seasonal and pandemic influenza and to stop flu-related deaths in our lifetime.
LKB will lobby on behalf of the Coalition on “Federal funding and policy issues related to seasonal and pandemic influenza,” according to lobbying registration documents filed with Congress in June.
LKB President and Founder Lisa Bernhardt manages the account. Bernhardt was previously a staffer to the U.S. Senate Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations Subcommittee.
Coalition to Stop Flu has spent $60,000 in lobbying efforts so far this year, according to data from the Senate Office of Public Records.
