We invite our ectodermal dysplasias community to join us for our second Ectodermal Dysplasias Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, July 18, 2018 in Washington D.C. Our goal is to meet with legislators and ask them to support a Senate Bill that will be announced soon by Senator Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin by voting yes. We do ask that you register all members of your family who will participate using the form below.


Our experts will lead a 3-hour training session on Tuesday, July 17. They will cover key messages, what to expect, logistical information and other tips to help make your day successful. Training will take place at a hotel site to be announced soon.


We have secured a block of rooms at the Kellogg Conference Hotel, 800 Florida Ave NE, in Washington D.C. To make your overnight guest room reservation at $149 per night based on availability, please call 202-651-6000 and ask for the NFED room block or you can make your reservation online.  There is a limited number of rooms available at this rate. Please book your reservations as soon as possible, and no later than Wednesday, June  27, 2018 .


Participation in Ectodermal Dysplasias Advocacy Day is free. We will provide dinner Tuesday night and breakfast on Wednesday. You are responsible for costs related to travel and lodging.
