Cancer Research is Saving Lives
Washington, D.C. ~ April 24, 2018

The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the Association of American Cancer Institutes (AACI) invite you to Capitol Hill on Tuesday, April 24, 2018.

Hill Day will bring cancer center directors, researchers, physician-scientists, cancer survivors and other advocates to Capitol Hill to build support for a strong federal investment in biomedical research, and cancer research in particular, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Specifically, participants will urge Members of Congress to provide robust, sustained, and predictable increases for the NIH and the NCI, and will share the progress being made against cancer through targeted initiatives like the Beau Biden Cancer Moonshot. With the federal government currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR), and uncertainty surrounding the Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 budget, there is no better time than now to plan to come to Washington and request a continued investment in the NIH and NCI in FY 2019 and beyond.

The NIH and NCI enjoy strong support on Capitol Hill, but your visit to Washington is necessary 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) or Mary Lee Watts at AACR (202-898-0788).

We look forward to seeing you in Washington, D.C. on April 24!

A room block has been reserved at the Washington Marriott at Metro Center. Reserve your room today!
