Fight Colorectal Cancer Hires Policy Strategist


Apr. 4, 2014 - ALEXANDRIA, Va. – This month, Fight Colorectal Cancer, a leading advocacy group focusing on colorectal cancer policy, added Margaret Carvin, an experienced lobbyist, former Hill staffer and cancer survivor to its team as Policy Strategist. Carvin will lead the nonprofit’s advocacy initiatives both internally and on the Hill. Carvin will work with congressional offices to push for colorectal policy changes and lead the advocate training program so survivor voices can be heard on the Hill.

Carvin brings more than 25 years of health care lobbying experience to Fight Colorectal Cancer. Prior experience includes working with the United Stated Department of Justice as legal counsel for the Office of Congressional Affairs and most recently, working as assistant director in the Congressional Affairs Office for the American Medical Association – working with the House of Representatives and Senate regarding health legislation and issues.

Carvin is a graduate of the University of the Pacific, McGeorge School of Law in Sacramento, Calif., and currently resides in Washington, D.C., with her family. She additionally serves as a member of the California Bar Association and Washington D.C. Bar Association.
