Registration is Open for Annual Hill Day, May 4

AACI’s annual Hill Day is set for Thursday, May 4, 2017, in Washington, DC. AACI will once again partner with the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) and the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) to bring advocates to Capitol Hill and request stable, predictable investments in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI).

Participants will thank Members of Congress for providing supplemental funding over seven years for cancer research, and specifically the Cancer Moonshot Initiative, in the bipartisan 21st Century Cures Act, signed into law by former President Barack Obama in December of 2016.

With a new administration in Washington, and new faces on key House and Senate committees, the need for advocates to highlight the achievements of cancer centers and request a robust investment for biomedical research has never been greater. We invite you to join your colleagues in Washington as we call on Congress to continue prioritizing funding for the NIH and the NCI for the overall health and economic well-being of our nation. AACI asks that each cancer center send a representative to Washington. Registration and accommodations can be found here. Please contact Jennifer Pegher with questions.
