The American Association for Dental Research (AADR) will present an honorary membership to Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA). Harkin will be recognized at the AADR/Research!America Advocacy Day on March 2, 2010, in Washington, DC.
From the AADR press release:
Harkin is being recognized for his commitment to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute for Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). He remains one of the Senate’s most staunch champions of biomedical research. Along with his colleague Senator Arlen Specter (also an AADR honorary member), Harkin led the effort to double the NIH budget from 1999-2003. Additionally, his leadership during the crafting of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act helped secure a much-needed $10.4 billion for NIH, which was quickly utilized by the scientific community all across the country.
RSVP for the AADR/Research!America Advocacy Day at www.iadr.org. The International & American Association for Dental Research is a Research!America member.
