This year’s AACI/AACR Hill Day will be held on Wednesday, June 15. The virtual advocacy day will consist of meetings organized by Soapbox. Hill Day is open to all AACI and AACR members who wish to participate.
In conjunction with Hill Day, we encourage all cancer research advocates to send a message to their members of Congress and urge them to support increased funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Cancer Institute (NCI).
Join us in calling on Congress to provide significant funding increases for the NIH and NCI in fiscal year (FY) 2023. We also encourage you to join the conversation on social media using the hashtags #FundNIH and #FundNCI. Thank you for your advocacy!
These printable PDF fact sheets offer a snapshot of cancer statistics—from the economic impact of biomedical research to cancer incidence and mortality rates—for each state with at least one cancer center participating in Hill Day. We encourage you to share these important facts and figures with your state legislators.
