A Conversation About Finding Local Opportunities for Research Advocacy
The Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) continues to provide information and tools to help individuals who want to advocate for invasive lobular carcinoma (ILC) and educate others about ILC.
The third conversation in a series of Advocate Chats focuses on finding local research advocacy opportunities. Featuring Liz Frank, lead advocate for the Dana Farber/Harvard Cancer Center Breast Cancer Advocate Program, the program discusses what research advocacy looks like at the local level, how to identify opportunities for engagement with research happening at institutions near you, and where and how to connect with other advocates in the field. Liz also shares tools and strategies one can use to engage in research as an advocate.
Learn more about LBCA and advocacy by visiting our Research Advocacy Toolkit and Advocacy through Education pages and reading Research Advocacy Resources and Questions and Answers, which provides many links to organizations that provide training and opportunities for involvement in research advocacy.
