Sept. 17th & 18th Rally for Medical Research Lobby Day

Medical Research is an issue that the rare disease community cares deeply about. If you would like to participate in this year’s rally: register here

Initiated by The American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), more than 200 national organizations came together to support the Rally for Medical Research on April 8, 2013 in Washington, DC on the steps of the Carnegie Library. Nearly 10,000 advocates gathered together to call on our nation’s policy makers to make funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in scientific research that ultimately leads to more progress, more hope and more lives saved.
