Public Issues Mission
With 86% of all NIH funding going to academic centers, it is important for AACI to closely follow NIH appropriations and reauthorization issues that directly affect AACI members. In 1999, a Public Issues Committee was established to initiate a course of action to promote our members' common interests and goals. More recently, a Government Relations Forum was also created to coordinate efforts among all cancer centers in educating Members of Congress about the cancer research enterprise and its positive impact on patients.
The following resources are provided to assist in cancer center communication with Members of Congress. Please continue to check back for recent calls-to-action and updates on legislative issues and written testimony.Contact Congress
