Mike and Joyce have attended a number of conferences recently, advocating for you, and learning more.

They take time to interview each other about their recent activities and share with you what they have been up to.

Mike attended the American Urological Association meeting, where he met the good folks from Prune Belly syndrome.

He also attended the meeting of the American Society for Clinical Oncology, learning about clinical trials and treatments for cancer.

Joyce spoke at a symposium on Radiation Safety for CT's organized by the California state university hospitals.  Her talk will be made available following the broadcast.

Mike and Joyce are both research advocates.  A research advocate learns to "speak the language" of the research teams and to provide input to the teams during the design of the clinical trials. If you are also interested in this important aspect of volunteerism, please contact  the Research Advocacy Network.  http://www.researchadvocacy.org
