Hundreds of Advocates Meet with Congress During the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day 

On September 22, the AACR and more than 300 medical research advocacy institutions and organizations partnered to host the fourth annual Rally for Medical R​esearch Hill Day. The Rally Hill Day serves as a strong reminder to Congress of the critical importance of funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Each year, Rally Hill Day participants specifically call upon members of Congress to provide robust, predictable, and sustainable budget increases for the NIH to ensure the health and economic well-being of the nation.

The AACR recently spoke with Maurice Bason and Shaundra L. Hall, that recently participated in the Rally For Medical Research and have participated in the AACR Scientist↔Survivor Program.
