In this session, CTD Executive Director Dennis Borel will be joined by a panel of issue experts to discuss how we plan to protect and expand consumer access to medications in the 2021 legislative session. Panelists include:
Kristen Crawford (Arthritis Foundation), on fair access to medicines
Justin Hudman (Amgen, former legislative staffer to Rep. Hunter), on the role & value of self-advocates
Grant Cale (Bristol Myers-Squibb), on innovative cancer medicines.
We're including time for attendees to weigh in as well, so plan on talking to each other!
Please note that we're setting aside some extra time, so this session will run until 3:15.
We envision RYV! to be an ongoing conversation around policy and organizing through the end of the year, and into 2021.
Please note: Zoom meetings will function best if you download the program or app onto your desktop, laptop, tablet, or smart phone. We are testing call-in function to ensure that folks calling in by dial phone are able to participate as well.
Some accessibility notes: the main room of the meeting will be closed captioned. We will be using the breakout rooms as well, so please indicate in your registration if you need the captions to follow you into the breakout room.
Session agenda and graphics, as well as Zoom resources for beginners, will be emailed to you ahead of time at the address you provide below.
We are not relying heavily on visuals and will be audio describing along the way, to make this session accessible for visually impaired folks and those calling in by phone.
We will provide some resources for new Zoom users and will open the room at 1:50 to help anyone who wants to run a tech check or practice Zoom functions. 1-on-1 tech assistance throughout the session will also be available.
If you have other accommodations requests (or suggestions!), including ASL interpretation, please indicate them in your registration below.
