Americans for Cures Foundation welcomes new and experienced advocates of all diseases and conditions to learn approaches that can further their advocacy for the facts and promise of stem cell research. Michael J. Fox joins other confirmed speakers including Robert N. Klein, Chair, California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM); Amy Comstock Rick, CEO of Parkinson's Action Network and President of the Coalition for Advancement of Medical Research; Bernard Siegel, Founder and Executive Director of Genetics Policy Institute; and Brock Reeve, Executive Director of Harvard Stem Cell Institute and brother of Christopher Reeve.

"We are reaching out nationally to Americans who are hungry for the facts, not the hype, about stem cell science. If we speak out together for cures, we can accelerate the pace at which hope becomes the reality of therapy," added Constance McKee, Co-Executive Director of Americans for Cures Foundation.
