Rally for Medical Research Hill Day

Rally_14_1_700x100_HILL

Join researchers, clinicians, survivors and other advocates to voice the importance of medical research!

Federal funding for medical research is in serious jeopardy, threatening the health of Americans and the United States’ global leadership in research and innovation. The Rally for Medical Research unites millions of Americans across the country to call on our nation’s policymakers to make life-saving medical research funding a national priority.

This unified call to action, which was launched in April 2013, continues to raise awareness about the critical need for an increased investment in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to improve health, spur more progress, inspire more hope and save more lives. On September 18, 2014, join the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day, as a broad coalition of groups from the medical research advocacy community will meet with House and Senate offices in Washington, D.C., to urge Congress to make funding for the NIH a national priority.

Make plans to join us in Washington on September 17 and 18 when researchers, clinicians, survivors and other advocates will take to Capitol Hill to speak with one voice about the importance of medical research! RSVP by September 5th!
