CHILDHOOD CANCER ACTION DAYS
JUNE 15-16, 2015
The Sarcoma Foundation of America, a member of the Alliance for Childhood Cancer, is pleased to announce that this year’s Childhood Cancer Action Days in Washington, DC, are scheduled for June 15-16, 2015.
Once again, organizational members of the Alliance for Childhood Cancer will host a two-day event that includes issues and advocacy training, and pre-arranged Capitol Hill visits with Congressional Representatives and their staff. The Alliance’s goal is to provide the childhood cancer community – parents, children, healthcare professionals and others – with the opportunity to visit their Representatives on Capitol Hill and advocate for the important childhood cancer issues currently before Congress.
This year, the training will take place at the Washington Court Hotel. A limited number of scholarships will be available. Information on how to apply is outlined in the registration information. Hotel Reservations: A block of rooms has been reserved at the Washington Court Hotel at a room rate of $249 per night. The hotel will accept reservations on a first-come, first-served basis.
If you have any questions, please contact Lori Hoffman, SFA Senior Manager of Scientific and Government Affairs, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301-253-8687.
