9 A.M. – 5 P.M.

Mark your calendars! AADR and the Friends of National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (FNIDCR) will hold their Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill on Tuesday, February 27.  

With the many competing federal funding priorities facing Congress, it is critical for the dental, oral and craniofacial research communities to communicate to policymakers not only how funding this research positively contributes to the overall health and well-being of the American people, but also how it can ease the economic burden oral conditions place on our society. 

Members of Congress want to hear from their constituents. The participation of AADR and FNIDCR members and patient advocates in our 2018 Advocacy Day is critical to demonstrating that increased investments in biomedical research and oral health programs are having a real impact on the people in their home states and beyond. We need your voice to amplify our message! 

The AADR and Friends of NIDCR Advocacy Day will include a morning briefing and training session, as well as an afternoon dedicated to meetings with participants’ members of Congress and Hill staff.
