EveryLife Community Congress: New Agenda

October 15, 2016

Get the inside-track on our legislative initiatives and learn about the activities each working group is undertaking. This is your opportunity to weigh in with the Foundation to help guide our policy and advocacy goals.


We need your input to ensure the success of our initiatives! These include next steps on enhancing and expanding Newborn Screening nationwide, proposed webinars on Navigating the FDA, and finally, we’ll be discussing the final push to pass the 21st Century Cures Act into law.
