Designed for all members of the multidisciplinary care team, this inspiring day provides the opportunity to share your patients' stories and advocate for their needs.
You'll meet with key policymakers in the Capitol to discuss ways we can work together to strengthen cancer patient care, learn about the most recent trends in public policy that may impact how you care for your patients, and more!
Plus, with a Leadership Day Training & Networking on Monday evening from 5:00 - 8:00 PM, you won't want to miss the collaborative opportunities this event has to offer!
