The Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) is pleased to announce it will be hosting another series of Advocat Chats in 2022.
What Are Advocate Chats?
LBCA provides a wealth of written material about how individuals can learn more about advocacy through education and research advocacy on our website. To bring these resources to life, we host a series of virtual Advocate Chats that are focused on advocacy skill building topics. Our sessions are one hour and include a presentation on a targeted topic followed by Q&As with the audience.
