Join us for the 5th Annual Virtual Teal on the Hill
Join us February 27th, 2022 - March 1st, 2022
Teal on the Hill is an annual event that brings hundreds of members of the Spina Bifida community together from across the U.S. to advocate for issues such as continued funding for the National Spina Bifida Program at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC); disability rights; and affordable and accessible health care, medical supplies, and technologies.
In 2020, more than 350 people from 44 states and the District of Columbia sent more than 2,000 emails to members of Congress. We’re delighted to report that on December 28, 2020, the Department of Labor, Health, and Human Services signed legislation to include an additional $1 million for the National Spina Bifida Program at the CDC, bringing the total budget to $7 million. That’s the first increase the Program has received in seven years!
NOTE: Due to COVID-19, our 2020, 2021 and 2022 events will be 100% virtual.
