Held every September, this Capitol Hill Day event continues the momentum established in 2013, and includes more than 300 national organizations coming together in support of the Rally for Medical Research. The purpose of the Rally is to call on our nation’s policymakers to make funding for National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical research that leads to MORE PROGRESS, MORE HOPE and MORE LIVES SAVED.

This is now officially the largest “Rally for Medical Research Hill Day” in our short history (8 years) of working together to call on our nation’s policymakers to make NIH a national priority! One of the very special parts of the “Rally Hill Day” involves the fact that there are patients, survivors, patient advocates, our future “pipeline” of young researchers, established researchers, physician scientists, health care professionals, and prominent leaders from many great institutions and organizations, all joining together to speak to Members of Congress and/or their staff about the value and importance of robust, sustained, and predictable annual funding increases for NIH and its twenty-seven Institutes and Centers.
