Meet international patient advocates!
In lieu of gathering together this year, we instead invited advocates from around the world to share videos of themselves describing their advocacy experiences in their countries.
From Naomi in Japan, to Oana in France, from Dorothy and Rachel in Australia, to Ayman in Saudi Arabia, advocates in Canada and the United States, and more, we invite you to hear what they have to say, then ask them questions about advocacy in their countries, too.

The leadership of ICOPA has come to a difficult decision to NOT hold an in-person ICOPA conference in 2020.
While it saddened us all to make that decision, we know it is in the best interests of you – our potential attendees and sponsors. Our international focus this year, from Japan to Jacksonville, from New Zealand to New York, from Saudi Arabia to San Antonio – and all points in between – meant taking travel risks and attending sessions in a “packed” venue during this uncertain time when keeping our distance can translate to staying healthy.
So hold the date for ICOPA 2021!
We’re already confirmed for Chicago, October 21 – 23… More details as we get closer to registration in Spring 2021.
We announced several weeks ago that we would hold three virtual events between October 2020 and May 2021. However, after further study and cost estimating, we have decided not to hold those events. We could not justify the benefits to you – our audience – at the price we would have had to charge to be sure you had a stellar experience, and received CEs as you needed them, too.
Then please check out the upcoming WASHAA Conference being held in early November.
