National Advocacy Summit
September 27-28, 2017
Omni Shoreham Hotel
2500 Calvert Street N.W.
Washington, DC, 20008
What is the Summit?: At a time when access to healthcare is a priority for every American, our combined voices will help ensure that the fight against lung cancer remains a priority among our national policymakers. You will come together with others impacted by lung cancer to learn how to effectively share your story and educate Members of Congress about the disparities that exist for lung cancer. You will receive hands-on training with distinct calls to action to ensure increased research funding and better and affordable healthcare for all.
Who Should Come?: We need patients, survivors, caregivers and loved ones from across the country to join us in Washington, DC and make your voice heard in our unwavering commitment to fight lung cancer. No prior experience is needed, just your story.
