This weekend we are excited to bring 1,000 current and potential leaders to the LIVESTRONG Summit at the Ohio State University. These leaders have been selected from across the country because they care about cancer issues and are willing to champion the cause in their communities. They will be inspired and empowered by renowned keynote speakers and hands-on training sessions, so they can return to their communities with the necessary tools to support the Foundation’s efforts to make cancer a national priority.
And just because you are not in Ohio this weekend, doesn’t mean you can’t participate. Throughout the weekend, LAF staff member Brian Howe will be blogging live from the summit, capturing the sights and the sounds. So check back often to see what is happening.
We also will be offering a live video stream of the keynote speakers (note this is not a video on demand option it will start and stop live as it happens). A few minutes before each event starts, we will update the blog with the appropriate link to see the stream.
