    Advocacy Event

    Mid-September is going to be a very critical and important time to be calling on our nation’s policymakers to invest in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for the health and economic security of our nation, especially since without some kind of agreement in September to either enact the FY 2014 appropriations bills or pass a short-term stopgap funding measure (continuing resolution), the Government (and NIH) will run out of funding when the next fiscal year begins October 1st. In addition, the debate that will take place in September on Capitol Hill will also highlight our concerns about the threat of an additional year of the automatic, across the board cuts in discretionary federal spending -- a process known as sequestration. And if all this is not enough, the Congressional debate is also likely to factor in the recent announcement by Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew that measures to avoid breaching the debt ceiling (for the United States) are projected to run out in mid-Octob …

    Kim Ryan will be speaking on Day 2 of the conference:

    4:30 The Patient Perspective

    "Personalized Medicine" means different things to different patients. Understanding the role that gene expression can play in the choices of a patient's cancer treatment options is important. What do patients know about this? How will it affect their treatment choices? Gain a better understanding of how patients think, and how patients process information. Their understanding of test results and how to interpret them is crucial.

    Steve Mayberry (1959-2010) lost his battle to colon cancer due to lack of awareness of Lynch Syndrome. Lynch Syndrome was only discovered in 1985. As a family, we found the medical community to be unaware of the Syndrome.  Had Steve or his doctors known, I believe he would have had screenings annually.  We raise awareness of groundbreaking cancer research by hosting cook off events because barbecue competition was Steve’s favorite pastime.
