Join the Cancer Policy Institute at the Cancer Support Community for an exciting advocacy webinar, Advocacy From Both Sides of the Desk. This webinar will offer an in-depth look at the ins and outs of engaging in advocacy as a patient advocate, as well as provide insight into the view from the other side of the desk. Our speaker, Adam Taliaferro, will walk you through his own journey to advocacy, his experience as an advocate, and then offer his experience from the other side as a New Jersey State Legislator. Adam was playing cornerback for the Penn State Nittany Lions football team in 2000 when he sustained a paralyzing spinal cord injury while making a tackle. Doctors told him he would never walk again, but he walked out of Magee Rehabilitation Hospital in Philadelphia just three months later. Since then, Adam earned his J.D. from Rutgers School of Law and went on to start the Adam Taliaferro Foundation to provide emotional, financial and educational support to individuals who suffer catastrophic head or spinal injuries in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware. He served on the Gloucester County Board of Chosen Freeholders as a county legislator from 2011 to 2014 and then moved on to the New Jersey General Assembly, where he has served as the Representative for the 3rd House district since January, 2015. Adam also works with Bristol-Myers Squibb in State Advocacy and Alliance Development.
