Rally for Medical Research!
September 14, 2023

Thank you for making the Eleventh Annual Rally for Medical Research a success! On September 14, over 240 advocates representing more than 30 states took part in more than 200 meetings with members of Congress and their staff. Participants thanked Congress for enacting eight consecutive years of robust funding increases for the National Institutes of Health (NIH), while urging members to support the highest possible appropriations increase for NIH in FY 2024.

Advocates also requested that lawmakers and their staff complete work on FY 2024 appropriations bills as quickly as possible to avoid the delays and disruptions caused by continuing resolutions. Advocates and partner organizations also participated in a National Day of Action on September 14, amplifying the Rally message via social media and email campaigns.

Stay tuned for information about the 2024 Rally for Medical Research in the coming months. We look forward to your continued support for advocating for increased investment in the NIH to improve health, spur progress, inspire hope, and save more lives.
