Learning Opportunity for lung cancer advocates!


Recommended Posts

The National Lung Cancer Partnership announces the Lung Cancer Advocacy Summit: Acquiring Tools, Effecting Change, which will take place on May 27-29 in Chicago, IL.

The purpose of the Lung Cancer Advocacy Summit is to provide training and guidance to 50 advocates for how to effect change at a grass-roots level.

Topics include: understanding the science of lung cancer; being your own health advocate; becoming a lung cancer consumer reviewer; reducing stigma of the disease; engaging the media; raising lung cancer awareness in your community; and navigating the legislative process.

Applications are sought from diverse members of the lung cancer advocacy community, regardless of experience or “allegiance” to any given organization. We have assembled a core group of lung cancer survivors and advocates who will review the applications and choose the participants.

Two nights of hotel accommodations and up to $500 in transportation costs will be provided to participants accepted to the summit. All meals during the summit will be provided.

To learn more about the Summit and to apply, please visit www.nationallungcancerpartnership.org or call 608-233-7905.

The application deadline is March 31, 2008.
