Due to the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), the 2020 AADR, ADEA and FNIDCR Capitol Hill Day has been Canceled.


After thoughtful deliberations, the American Association for Dental Research (AADR) and the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) have made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 AADR, ADEA, and Friends of NIDCR Capitol Hill Day, scheduled for March 17, 2020 in Washington, D.C. due to the COVID-19 outbreak. 

AADR and ADEA have been closely monitoring the Centers for Disease Control website as well as the actions of academic dental institutions surrounding COVID-19 response. Based on the numerous travel restrictions implemented by federal agencies, state governments, and universities it became clear that canceling was the right course of action. 

The work of dental research and education goes on and so does the need to inform policymakers in Congress of that work’s importance. Therefore, we hope you will join us on March 17 to champion our policy priorities virtually. Details are forthcoming.
