Fernando Diaz: The ASCO Advocacy Summit is an amazing 2-day experience but advocacy happens all year long

Fernando Diaz, Geriatric-Oncology Fellow at UNC-Chapel Hill, shared on X:

The ASCO Advocacy Summit is an amazing 2-day experience where we get to meet our legislators but the truth is advocacy happens all year long.

Many of us use the ASCO Advocacy Toolkit frequently and stay involved.

  1.  Donate to the ASCO PAC (there’s a contribution level for trainees!)
  2.  Use the ACT Network to send your local representatives emails regarding important legislative issues.
  3. Meet with your local lawmakers! My rec: get involved early as a trainee or early career oncologist and learn from wonderful colleagues who are seasoned veterans at the summit. They make it look easy but it’s a skill that gets better each time.”
