Please save the date for NHF’s 2012 Washington Days, which will be held on March 7-9. We will again be staying at the Crystal Gateway Marriott, a short metro or cab ride away from DC airports and Capitol Hill. We will follow the same format as past years: the briefing and reception will be held on Wednesday evening, March 7th; state teams will make Capitol Hill visits on Thursday, March 8th; and a state advocacy workshop will be conducted on Friday, March 9th.
Your participation this year is vital. Given the focus on reducing government expenditures and the continued controversy over health reform and its implementation, it will be critically important for the bleeding disorders community to advocate for policies that benefit us. By telling your story, you put a face on real issues that affect individuals and families dealing with bleeding disorders.
Stay tuned for more information on registration and our specific advocacy issues for Washington Days 2012.
