2021 Virtual Advocate Leadership Summit

May 13-15, 2021; Lobby Day May 18th

Join with fellow survivors, advocates, and members of the breast cancer community, who are lending their voice and transforming breast cancer research and public policy, and ensuring quality healthcare for all. Exciting plenaries and skill-building workshops will focus on the most critical areas of breast cancer research, science, and public policy.  Attendees will have opportunities to network with other breast cancer survivors and advocates, and connect with leading researchers in the field.  Our annual Lobby Day will follow the Summit on May 18, when advocates will meet with their elected officials under the leadership of NBCC, about our 2021 legislative and policy agenda.
