iCAN Research and Advocacy Summit

Every year, all of our chapters come together for the innovative and exciting iCAN Research & Advocacy Summit.

 

This event provides our youth members with an invaluable opportunity to learn from one another, and to network with leading professionals from around the globe.  In turn, the iCAN Research & Advocacy Summit offers the scientific community an opportunity to engage with directly with children and parents, so that they may learn about the value and the significant importance of the influence of children on research, medicine, and innovation.

Since the inception of iCAN, an annual iCAN Research & Advisory Summit has been offered to provide young people an opportunity of working with medical professionals, community leaders, scientists, and researchers in medicine, science, health, advocacy, and technology to improve the health and well-being of children with chronic conditions and rare diseases.
