Rare Disease Legislative Advocates recently hosted a webinar which provided an overview of Rare Disease Week on Capitol Hill, to be held February 27th through March 2nd, 2017 in Washington, DC. The week of events brings together rare disease community members from across the country to be educated on federal legislative issues, meet other advocates, and share their unique stories with legislators. There will be new Members of the House and Senate next year, and it is critical for them to meet members of their communities affected by rare disease.
All of the events are free for patient advocates, and registration will open on January 4th.
