WHAT’S NEW

Complimentary Registration is Open for the 2015 Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, Co-sponsored by AADR and ADEA

April 14, 2015
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

The need for advocacy on behalf of biomedical research has never been greater. 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 Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill, cosponsored by AADR and ADEA is necessary to amplify the message to Congress that cutting federal funding is harmful and increased investments in biomedical research and other oral health programs 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 and/or small group meetings with participants' congressional offices.

Registration is easy. Simply click here to register for this event. There is no registration fee to attend. 

Please visit www.aadr.org/advocacyday for more information as it becomes available. Questions may be directed to AADR Director of Government Affairs Carolyn Mullen at cmullen@aadr.org or 1.703.299.8098.

Donate for Research

Dental research created a profession. In the early decades of the last century, investments in dental research moved a trade to a profession. From the fluoridation of public water supplies – a crowning public health achievement of the 20th Century – to high-speed handpieces, dental composites and ceramic restorations, periodontal diagnostics and therapeutics, and more biologic approaches to replacing lost tissues, it was the investments in dental research that defined us as a profession.
