Join PAN for its 2011 Research and Public Policy Forum
- Nov 02 2010
The Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) invites you to join its 2011 Research and Public Policy Forum, a three-day advocacy training that will take place Monday, February 28 to Wednesday, March 2 in Washington, DC. The event, which is also available online as a three-hour long Webcast, is the link between Parkinson's advocates and the federal government, bringing them together to secure research funding and better policies.
Attendees of the in-person forum will receive detailed advocacy training and meet with Members of Congress and Capitol Hill staff - representing the entire Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. The forum also includes special breakout sessions with expert speakers and a panel on the new Congress, discussing how this dynamic will affect public policy for Parkinson's disease.
Those who cannot attend the forum are able to watch the live Webcast on February 28 for free, providing the opportunity to learn more about PAN and how to advocate for the Parkinson's community year-round. The Webcast includes a keynote address from a leader in the Parkinson's community and a session with federally-funded Parkinson's researchers.
For more information on the 2011 PAN Forum or to register, call (800) 850-4726 or visit www.thepanforum.org.
In 2010, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000. Based in Washington, DC, PAN serves as the unified voice of the PD community on public policy issues.
