The 14th Annual Patient Congress:
Patient Congress, Patient Advocate Foundations largest national meeting held in Washington, DC, is attended by patients, caregivers, nurses, physicians, pharmaceutical representatives, insurance executives, and advocacy group representatives. Each year, Patient Congress has an average attendance of 100 attendees from each of the 50 states. Patient Congress is a two-day symposium that strives to educate attendees on current healthcare legislation at the Federal level and provide them with a forum through which they can effect change through constituent visits with their Congressional member. All of the activities are designed to empower the attendees, allowing them to use their voice in an educated, informed way to effect change both legislatively and personally through treatment decisions.
PAF is excited to be convening its 14th Annual Patient Congress in Washington, D.C. on June 19-20, 2013 at the Washington Court Hotel located at 525 New Jersey Avenue, NW.
