Cancer Research is Saving Lives
Washington, D.C. ~ May 4, 2017

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and the Association of American Cancer Institutes (AACI) invite you to Capitol Hill on Thursday, May 4, 2017.

Hill Day will bring researchers, oncologists, cancer survivors and other advocates to Capitol Hill to build support for cancer research and biomedical science.

Specifically, participants will urge Members of Congress to provide robust, predictable and sustained investments for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). Attendees will thank Members of Congress for passing the 21st Century Cures Act in December 2016, which provided supplemental funding over seven years for the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot Initiative, and for ensuring the initial $300 million in FY 2017 for the Moonshot was included in the continuing resolution (CR), passed in December.

With a new administration and Congress, including new members on key House and Senate committees, the May Hill Day is an important and opportune time to underscore the value of a bipartisan commitment to cancer research in saving and improving millions of lives touched by cancer.

Please use this form to register to participate in the Hill Day. If you have any questions, please contact: Jennifer Pegher at AACI (412-647-0557), James Ingram at AACR (267-765-1030), or Caitlin Demchuk at ASCO (571-483-1663).

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C. on May 4th!

A room block has been reserved at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill. Reserve your room today!
