The 2022 AACI/AACR Hill Day is scheduled for Wednesday, June 15. The advocacy day will consist of virtual meetings organized by Soapbox.
Hill Day will bring cancer center directors, researchers, physician-scientists, cancer survivors, and other advocates together online to build support for a strong federal investment in biomedical research—and cancer research in particular—through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). All faculty and staff of AACI cancer centers and AACR members are invited to spend the day advocating for cancer research funding.
Participation in Hill Day is critical to sharing our message with legislators: that stable, predictable funding increases are essential to advancing research and care at our nation’s cancer centers. Your participation will underscore the value of a bipartisan commitment to cancer research in saving and improving millions of lives touched by cancer.
For participants in the eastern time zone, meetings will be scheduled between 9:00 am–5:30 pm eastern time (ET). For those in other time zones, meetings will be scheduled starting at 9:00 am local time and no later than 5:30 pm ET. For example, in the Pacific time zone, meetings will be scheduled between 9:00 am–2:30 pm PT. In some rare cases, an office may only be able to meet outside these times; if so, participants will be notified as far in advance as possible.
Hill Day registration closes this Friday, June 3. Please contact AACI Government Relations Manager Jaren Love with any questions.
