AACI works on behalf of its 100 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 all 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.
AACI empowers its members to advocate for the cancer center community by contacting their representatives directly.
