Register now for the inaugural National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences Advocacy Day: Partnering with Patients for Smarter Science. The purpose of the event is to inform patients and their advocates about NCATS and its programs, identify patient needs, and collectively discuss ways for improved patient inclusion in NCATS’ translational science activities. Admission is complimentary, but space is limited so be sure to register early.

The full day event will feature presentations, interactive activities and a poster session. Designed for patients, families, caregivers and patient advocacy groups, the event will foster an open dialogue among patients and their advocates to discuss common translational science roadblocks, brainstorm ideas for improvement, and apply that knowledge to strengthen patient and community engagement at NCATS.

Join in the conversation on June 30, 2017, via #NCATSAdvocacyDay on Twitter.
