    Pro Tip: Video and web capability would be great! We’ll have content to stream and live look-ins to what is happening in D.C.!
  3. Invite attendees. Start by thinking of whose insights you want to feature at your event. Consider inviting community leaders, patient advocates, scientists, and others who can help drive the discussion with their unique perspectives.
