My Experience with the NBCC conference and Lobby Day

Jeanne Rothamel (L) and Christine Carpenter (R) meet with Senator Tom Harkin while lobbying in Washington D.C.

The educational opportunities were amazing at the NBCC conference.  Not just from the medical side, but from the professional woman aspect.  The small group meetings with the speakers offered the opportunity to comfortably ask questions of the researchers and physicians.  Lobby Day was a new experience for me, becoming more comfortable as the day progressed.  My medical background proved beneficial.  We were welcomed into each meeting, the aides and congressmen were very receptive, making for a positive experience.  It was good to be an Iowan that day and I was happy to be a part of the BPT contingent. – Jeanne Rothamel
