KidneyCAN is thrilled to announce the success of our Spring Advocacy Days event, which took place on March 13th in person in Washington, D.C., and on March 14th virtually. We are grateful for the 186 confirmed meetings with representatives from 42 states, including 75 Senate meetings and 111 House meetings.
Of these meetings, 47 were held in person, while 139 were held virtually. We are proud that 138 attendees advocated on behalf of our community, including 60 patients, 45 caregivers/family/friends, and 33 medical professionals.
Additionally, we were especially excited to have 20 Kidney Cancer Research Program awardees in attendance to tell Congress how this funding is impacting their work and the lives of their patients.
