2020 Virtual Rally for Medical Research
The goal of the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day is to speak with a unified voice to House and Senate offices on Capitol Hill about the importance of investing in the NIH to improve the health and economic security of our nation.
The 8th annual Rally for Medical Research Hill Day will be held on Thursday, September 17, 2020 as an entirely virtual event. Approximately 350 national organizations and institutions are supporting this event and will have advocates participating in virtual meetings with congressional offices and/or engaging in grassroots activities. The virtual Hill Day event will unite advocates from across the country and across the medical research advocacy community to urge Congress to continue to make funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority and to thank Members of Congress for their extraordinary support for the NIH over the last five years. This effort will raise awareness about the critical need for robust, sustained, and predictable funding increases for the NIH in Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 and beyond to improve health, spur more progress, inspire more hope and save more lives.
