Public Policy & Advocacy

Making a Difference

AACI works on behalf of North America's leading cancer centers to advocate for federal funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI). 

The AACI Government Relations Forum was created to coordinate efforts among cancer centers to educate local officials and members of Congress about the cancer research enterprise and the positive impact of cancer center initiatives on patients. The Government Relations Forum facilitates an improved understanding of policy issues as they pertain to cancer prevention, treatment, and survivorship — for AACI members and for legislators.

Participation in the forum is open to AACI members only.
