The health and well-being of our Hill Day participants and cancer center patients is the top priority for AACI and AACR. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, AACI and AACR’s annual visit to Capitol Hill, scheduled for Wednesday, May 13, has shifted to a virtual format.
This year’s AACI/AACR Hill Day will be held on Friday, June 5. The virtual advocacy day will consist of conference call meetings organized by Soapbox targeting the following members:
The event will focus on our request of $44.7 billion for the NIH and $6.9 billion for the NCI in the FY 2021 budget, and messaging will emphasize the additional importance of funding for these agencies amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact AACI’s government relations manager, Jaren Love, at [email protected].
