Research!America regularly hosts Hill briefings, panel discussions, luncheons and other events with partner organizations in order to educate policymakers and the public about the benefits of research to health and the economy. Panelists for our annual National Health Research Forum include the heads of the federal health agencies, former members of Congress and key stakeholders. Our annual Advocacy Awards Dinner honors individuals and organizations for their tireless advocacy on behalf of research.  

The National Advocacy Awards Dinner will feature an exclusive Capitol Conversation with leaders from Congress, federal agencies, industry and the research community on accelerating cures for lupus and other chronic diseases.
