Sick Cells’ annual Ambassador Policy Forum brings together active Ambassadors to collaborate and build a stronger community. The virtual, 2-day event* will take place every year in March.
*Check out our full 2022 event brochure here for an example schedule and agenda.
Sick Cells works hard to ensure the Policy Forum and Hill Day provides the most interactive experience for our Ambassadors. Sick Cells will offer several tools and features in order to assist in the preparedness and efficiency of our Ambassadors:
1) Mail-out Materials. Sick Cells mails attendees a welcome packet containing the following hand-outs for the event: Branded Agenda, Presenter Bios, Federal Priorities One-Pager, and advocacy toolkits.
2) Virtual Hill Day platform. Sick Cells offers a web-based platform for Ambassadors to use during their virtual Hill Day appointments. Ambassadors can access their schedules online, receive notifications and reminders, and connect with ease to the virtual meeting room.
3) SCD Federal Priorities One-pager. Every year Sick Cells develops a one-pager for Ambassadors to present to federal policymakers. Sick Cells works in collaboration with the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America (SCDAA) and other SCD advocacy groups to outline national federal priorities for the SCD community.
