DDNC Fall 2015 Forum

The Digestive Disease National Coalition (DDNC)--the leading public policy advocacy organization in our nation's capital for persons affected with digestive diseases--invites you to participate in the Fall Public Policy Forum, October 27 & 28, 2015, in Washington, D.C.

Join other patients, health care providers, and industry representatives for legislative updates and advocacy training. Participants from around the country learn about federal healthcare legislation and policy the evening of October 27, and then attend scheduled meetings with members of Congress and their staffs to discuss issues of concern to the digestive disease community on October 28. Lunch will be served between visits, and a debriefing held at the end of the day. (See agenda and hotel suggestions below)

This is an excellent opportunity to help put a face to HPEN therapies and the real and often serious issues you are facing. Help lawmakers understand how current and proposed policies may affect you, their constituent. Have your voice heard!

Oley staff will participate. If at all possible, please join us, and let us know you are coming so we can look for you.
