2022 Rally for Medical Research

Join advocates from around the country for the 2022 Rally for Medical Research! The Hill Day will take place on Wednesday, September 14, with advocates meeting their congressional representatives and staff. The evening before, on September 13, we will host a  reception to celebrate medical research with all partners and participants. Together, we will continue to call on our nation’s policymakers to make funding for NIH a national priority and raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical research that leads to MORE PROGRESS, MORE HOPE and MORE LIVES SAVED.

Join the conversation on social media using the hashtags #RallyMedRes #FundNIH.

Note: As you plan your travel to DC, please keep the following information in mind:

    • Please plan to arrive at the Park Hyatt Hotel, 1201 24th Street NW in DC no later than 1:30 pm on Tuesday, September 13 for the training session. We strongly encourage you to participate in the training session. Current Capitol Hill security protocols include participants being escorted into buildings from specific meeting locations, and the training will include how to meet the staff contact and physically get to your meetings as well as the message we will deliver to Congress. The training is also critical because it provides an opportunity to meet the other people who will be joining your congressional meetings and get organized for those meetings.
    • We are in the process of booking your Hill meetings and expect them to run from 9 am – 4:30 pm on Wednesday, September 14. Therefore, to the extent possible, we ask that you not book your return flights until after 6:30 pm that evening. We will have space on the Hill for you to store your luggage so you do not have to go back to the hotel.
    • If your schedule has changed and you are no longer able to participate in a portion or all of the Hill Day on September 14, please email us immediately at info@rallyformedicalresearch.org so we do not schedule congressional meetings you are not able to attend.
