Do you have a child receiving health care at a children’s hospital? Would you like to let your congressional representatives know just about how important your children’s hospital is in the care of your child? Have your voice heard! Attend the Speak Now For Kids Advocacy Day this June.
Speak Now For Kids Family Advocacy Day
On June 19th and 20th, patients and families from children’s hospitals across the United States will gather in Washington DC for the ninth annual Speak Now for Kids Family Advocacy Day.
Join other families and children’s hospital representatives as they meet with our country’s lawmakers with the like-minded goal to advocate for and raise awareness of children’s health issues.
This is your opportunity to tell your congressmen and women how important your children’s hospital is for you and your family. Families attending the Speak Now event will have the opportunity to share their stories with legislators and the media, and to discuss just how important children’s hospitals are to all children.
See what families who attended last year’s event had to say.
