The Lung Cancer Action Summit: Tools for Change is currently accepting applications for its annual advocacy meeting, which will take place in mid-September in Pittsburgh. The deadline for applications is July 1. Travel grants are available.
In its seventh year, the Summit offers participants information on educating their community about lung cancer, fundraising, creating a local awareness and advocacy campaign and more. The Summit will also include a guided tour of the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s lung cancer research labs. The program is limited to 75 participants to keep it interactive and personal.
Geared toward patients, survivors and advocates, registrants do not need experience in advocacy, just a desire to bring lung cancer awareness and action to their local communities.
