AACI/AACR Virtual Hill Day Registration

Due to ongoing health concerns related to COVID-19, AACI and AACR have shifted their joint visit to Capitol Hill to a virtual format for the second year. 

This year’s AACI/AACR Hill Day will be held on Wednesday, June 9. The virtual advocacy day will consist of video and conference call meetings organized by Soapbox, a firm that specializes in coordinating advocacy days. Hill Day is open to all AACI and AACR members who wish to participate.

The event will focus on our request of $46.11 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and $7.609 billion for the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in the Fiscal Year 2022 budget, and messaging will emphasize the importance of funding for these agencies amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We will also request an additional $10 billion for the NIH to address COVID-related research disruptions. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact AACI’s government relations manager, Jaren Love.
