Advocates Workshop Prior to LDA Conference

On Friday, October 1, 2010 in Philadelphia, PA, the LDASEPA will hold an Advocates Workshop.  Taking place at the Hyatt on the day before the national Lyme Disease Association/Columbia 2010 Scientific Conference, the Advocates Workshop will provide advocates, new and old, with a wonderful opportunity to network, to learn strategies from speakers, and from each other.

Advocacy training days have been held the past two years, sponsored by CALDA, and have been very well received.  New ideas are shared, and new projects begun, with attendees coming away from it enriched by the experience.

I am privileged to be participating in this year’s Advocates Workshop, speaking on the topic “The Personal Side of Patient Support:  A Guide for Lyme Leaders.”

The Lyme Disease Association and Affiliate groups continue to lead the way in patient advocacy, as they have for two decades.  I look forward to being a part of this important program.
