Capitol Hill Day Volunteer Hub

Welcome to your portal for this year's virtual Capitol Hill Day. We are very happy to have you join our great community of patients, doctors and advocates that have given their time to improving care for those living with psoriatic disease.

NPF’s Capitol Hill Day Committee Members are here to serve as peer guides for event attendees and provide unique attendee feedback to NPF staff throughout the planning process. As we get closer to the event, they will provide training tips and be available for questions. 

Event Details 

The 2021 Capitol Hill Day will be held in a virtual format with 75 participants! Due to the larger size of this event and the flexibility gained through the virtual format, Hill meetings will be held across two dates. Please review the below map to identify which day your meetings will be.  

Key Dates

Early April: Attendee Social Hour

While we wish we could all catch up in the hotel lobby before the training dinner, things are a bit different this year. The Capitol Hill Day Committee is planning a social hour to provide the same opportunity as the ‘lobby time’ we would normally have.
