Ana I. Velázquez Mañana: Honored for this opportunity at ASCO Advocacy Summit

Ana I. Velázquez Mañana shared post by ASCO on X/Twitter:

“Honored for this opportunity! Thanks ASCO for highlighting my day at ASCO Advocacy Summit advocating for Cancer Research funding, Tele Health coverage, and policies to end Drug Shortages with many friends!

Love the cameo by Nala and Maui for all the Med Twitter dog moms out there!”

Quoting ASCO’s post:

Last week’s ASCO Advocacy Summit brought together 170+ ASCO volunteers in DC, advocating to end drug shortages, support robust federal research funding, and expand telehealth.

Follow along with Dr. Ana I. Velázquez Mañana for a Day In The Life of advocacy training, Hill meetings, and more!”
