    The Stakeholder meeting and Lobby Day is the first opportunity for key colorectal cancer stakeholders and supporters to join together and bring their staff, volunteers and members to Washington, DC, to meet with Congress to advocate for federal policies that will help us achieve our goal of 80% by 2018.

    Joined by Congressman Donald Payne, Jr. and other lawmakers dedicated to the mission, the morning stakeholder will focus on discussing the current barriers to screening, ongoing advocacy efforts, and how the stakeholder community can work with Congress to achieve our goal.

    Immediately following the stakeholder meeting, we will kick off our lobby day focused on increasing support for the legislation that will eliminate the financial barrier for Medicare beneficiaries (H.R. 1070 and S. 2348). Each individual registered will be provided talking points on the legislation and a meeting schedule with members of Congress and/or staff members.

    We greatly appreciate Rep. Payne, Jr., Rep. Dent and Senator Brown's  leadership in arranging this meeting and their support in championing necessary legislation to fix the colonoscopy loophole.

    Our intent is to be as inclusive as possible, as the only way to get to 2018 is by working together. If your organization is interested we encourage that you and representatives of your organization attend both the stakeholder meeting and lobby day.

    Hosted by Fight CRC and ACS CAN
