WHAT’S NEW

Save the Date: 2015 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill

April 14, 2015
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The need for advocacy on behalf of biomedical research is needed. In 2015 a newly elected Congress with fresh priorities will need to better understand the importance of dental, oral and craniofacial research. Your participation in the 2015 AADR/ADEA Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill is necessary to amplify the message to Congress that cutting federal funding is harmful and increased investments in biomedical research are needed for the health of the public. 

The program will include a morning key issues briefing with members of Congress and staff from select federal agencies; and an afternoon of individual meetings with congressional offices.

Registration will begin on January 5, 2015. Preliminary questions can be directed to AADR Director of Government Affairs Carolyn Mullen at cmullen@aadr.org or 1.703.299.8098.
