This year's Advocacy Summit is "All About You" and will be held online via Zoom on August 21 through August 22. At this year's event, we'll be joined by keynote speaker, Sharon Delaney McCloud, who is a cancer survivor and advocate, plus an Emmy-award winning broadcaster.
By attending our event you'll learn how to use your own story to be the best advocate you can be, allowing you to leave the biggest impact you can on your local lung cancer community. While at our event you'll be able to participate in a "Lung Cancer 101" session, hear about health disparities and the latest research updates from our panel of experts and network with others (survivors, caregivers, healthcare professionals, advocates, families and more).

Since this year's Summit theme is All About You, we would love to hear your story. If you are interested, please send a brief, about 1 minute, video about you and how lung cancer has impacted your life. We will be sharing these throughout the Summit. Please send videos to firstname.lastname@example.org. A few tips: please film horizontally and speak loud and clear.
