We will kick off Wednesday afternoon with an issue briefing by Director of Government Affairs, Katherine Slye-Hernandez, PhD, and Government Affairs Consultant, Pat Rita, to review the issues we want to discuss with legislators. The briefing will be followed by a cocktail hour and group dinner at the Lincoln Restaurant.

Thursday will be our “Day on The Hill.” All attendees will meet with their Congressional Representatives and Senators to discuss our issues.
