Represent LRF at the National Level

Advocates have the opportunity to affect policy decisions at the national level by becoming a members or representative on a number of federal advisory councils and panels. These are unique opportunities for LRF advocates who want to engage with lymphoma policy at the highest level.

These advisory panels exist as parts of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Department of Defense, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Department of Health and Human Services, and other governmental institutions. Volunteers in these positions advise the appropriate body on issues affecting the lymphoma community ranging from federal funding and research grants to new drug approvals.

Details for these opportunities are often made public with a very short window of opportunity, and require a letter of nomination by an organization such as LRF. As they are made available to the public, LRF will publish descriptions of these opportunities in the Public Policy and Advocacy News section of the LRF website.

To learn more about these opportunities, email LRF at advocacy@lymphoma.org.
