Save the date for the inaugural National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Advocacy Day. The purpose of the event is to inform patients and their advocates about NCATS and its programs, identify patient needs, and collectively discuss ways for improved patient inclusion in NCATS’ translational science activities. The full day event features presentations, interactive activities, and a poster session. Designed for patients, families, caregivers, and patient advocacy groups, the event will foster an open dialogue among patients and their advocates to discuss common translational science roadblocks, brainstorm ideas for improvement, and apply that knowledge to strengthen patient and community engagement at NCATS.
