Head to the Hill took place on May 8 and 9, 2017. National Brain Tumor Society is proud of the work each and every advocate put in to make Head to the Hill such an amazing, inspiring, powerful event in 2017. 308 advocates from 38 states across the United States gathered in Washington, DC to advocate for issues that affect the brain tumor community.
Volunteer advocates took real, meaningful action and informed their members of Congress what is important to their constituents. Together, these volunteer advocates held 223 meetings with congressional offices. Not only did the they take action in Congressional meetings, they built awareness on Capitol Hill and across the US! Advocates from all across America called, tweeted, and sent over 1,000 letters to members of Congress as part of our Action Day.
