At the press conference, a landmark report entitled “Pancreatic Cancer: A trickle of federal funding for a river of need” will be released. The report encourages the National Cancer Institute to develop a new national strategy for knowing, fighting and ending pancreatic cancer.
We encourage all local constituents to attend the press conference and dress in purple to show support for the cause. If you plan to attend, you must reserve your place at RSVP@pancan.org no later than noon on Thursday, February 10. If you do not register by the deadline, you will not be permitted to attend the press conference due to federal security regulations. Once you register, we will send you information on how to get to the event.
Keep these tips in mind:
- Take public transit to Capitol Hill due to parking restrictions.
- Bring your government-issued identification with you. (It is required to enter the Capitol building.)
