The American Cancer Society's Annual Lobby Day will be held on Tuesday, March 27, 2012 from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. at the State Capitol in the Old Judiciary Room (you will not be required to stay for the entire time). 

One of our targets is to ask our legislators to restore funding for the CT Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection program which provides free mammograms and PAP tests to women who have no health insurance.  Funding was decreased by 10% in the last session and an additional 5% cut has been proposed.  Due to these cuts, 1,500 otherwise eligible women will not have access to these screenings.

If you, your place of employment or any friends/family members are interested in participating, registration is required.  Please contact Kathleen Turner at 860.440.6446 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Through advocacy we can change public health policy in an effort to reduce and eliminate cancer incidence and mortality rates due to cancer.  Please come make your voice heard!
