Steve Silvestri, Director of Public Policy at the EveryLife Foundation for Rare Diseases, discusses the role of advocates in lobbying Congress and the 2019 Legislative Conference Agenda held February 25, 2019 at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.

This daylong event provided patient advocates with the tools necessary to properly lobby for their particular cause on Capitol Hill. This event is a prerequisite to attend Lobby day on February 26th and will give advocates an opportunity to learn best practices for building effective relationships with Senators, Members of Congress, and their staff.
