Town Hall Meeting in Your District!
Advocacy Alert: 7/31/2007
Your member of Congress, will be among those who hold one or more Town Hall Meetings in your area during the August Congressional recess.
Please learn more about what you can do to gain support for making CFS a higher NIH priority during the month of August, when Congress goes home to meet with constituents. We've created two resources for you:
A written primer, "August is Prime Time," is posted at http://www.cfids.org/cfidslink/2007/080106.asp and a webinar event is scheduled for Tuesday, August 7 at 3:30 p.m. (Eastern time). Register at https://www.gotomeeting.com/register/128552820 for this free program to hear from experts about how to make the most of the Town Hall meeting in your area.
