2014 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

Participate in the AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill program and help amplify the message to Congress that cutting federal funding is harmful and sustained investments in biomedical research are needed for the health of the public.

Take advantage of complimentary registration to attend the 2014 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill program, April 8, 2014, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. The program will begin in the Rayburn House Office Building Gold Room (#2168), and it will include a morning key issues briefing with Members of Congress and staff from select Federal agencies, and an afternoon of individual meetings with Congressional offices.

Last year Congress implemented devastating cuts known as sequestration and shutdown the federal government for 16 days, which had a significant impact on biomedical research, institutions and scientists. Today, the need for enhanced advocacy on behalf of biomedical research is needed. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 only reduced a portion of sequestration cuts and future funding levels for the National Institutes of Health need to be determined by Congress.

RSVP Today!

To take advantage of the complimentary registration, simply email your RSVP and contact information to AADR Director of Government Affairs Carolyn Mullen at [email protected] as soon as possible.
