One Week Left in Virtual Lobby Day!

There is only one week left in EDC's Virtual Lobby Day!

Meet with your legislators during the August Recess, and make your voice heard in the health care debate by advocating for reform and eating disorders without coming to DC!

The Eating Disorders Coalition's inaugural EDC Virtual Lobby week ends Friday, August 28, 2009, coinciding with the recess on Capitol Hill. This is the perfect time to meet with your representatives while they are in their hometowns and make your voice heard!
