Join PAN on February 28 for its Research & Public Policy Forum

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. Participants can join in person, or can watch a live Webcast on February 28 from 1:00 PM ET - 4:00 PM ET.  

The event 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 choose to watch the free live Webcast on Monday, February 28 will learn more about PAN and how to advocate for the Parkinson's community year-round by working with Members of Congress.  The Webcast includes a keynote address from a leader in the Parkinson's community and a session with federally-funded Parkinson's researchers.  Early registration is required for the webcast.
