Be the Change You Want to See in the World!
The Lupus Foundation of America recently opened up registration for the 2019 National Lupus Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC. Registration opened on December 10, 2018 and will run until February (or until they reach maximum capacity). The 2019 National Lupus Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC will be held on March 4th and March 5th of 2019 to help lupus advocates let their voices be heard. It is a great opportunity for lupus warriors to connect with other lupus warriors and to learn about ground breaking research in lupus. There will also be a time for lupus advocates to speak with Congress members about their personal lupus stories and urge support for critical lupus research and new treatments.
According to the Lupus Foundation:
In 2018, the Summit helped secure more than $14 million in federal funding for critical lupus research and education programs – but more must be done.
The registration to attend the summit is $50. They are also offering scholarships to those who would like to attend but can not afford to do so. They do state that the competition for these scholarships are pretty competitive, but they do a great job at listing fundraising ideas on their page.
If you or someone you know are interested in being a part of lupus advocacy, head on over The Lupus Foundation of America’s page to register for the 2019 National Lupus Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC. I hope to see you there!
