Rare disease patient advocates and other stakeholders from the rare disease community came together on Friday, July 31th, 2015 in San Francisco, CA for our inaugural West Coast Legislative Conference. The goal of our new regional legislative conferences was to update advocates about important legislation advancing through Congress and to prepare them to meet with their Representatives during August Recess.
Thanks to our co-hosts and sponsors, advocates were updated and discussed important legislation advancing through Congress and are prepared to meet with their Representatives during August Recess. We were joined by the esteemed Dr. Keith Yamamoto, Rep. Eric Swalwell (CA-15), & Willie Brown. Lunch was provided, and a networking reception followed the event.
This event was a great success view photos here:
