2017 Rally for Medical Research

Dear HANDS members,

Since 2013, the Rally for Medical Research has been held every September. It is an opportunity for over 300 national organizations to call on our nation’s policymakers to make funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority and to raise awareness about the importance of continued investment in medical research that to more progress and more lives saved.

Every year the Hydrocephalus Association supports our partnership with the Rally for Medical Research by participating in the two-day event.  The Rally for Medical Research has been instrumental in raising awareness for medical innovations and investments that support NIH. As of this year, the Hydrocephalus Association has participated in many Rallies and we are excited to invite YOU to join the HA staff to represent the hydrocephalus community at these events. The goal of the week is to urge legislators to increase and/or sustain funding for NIH, to educate elected officials how NIH funding has improved lives of those living with hydrocephalus, meet other advocates, and share their unique stories with Senators and Representatives.

If you are interested in participating in Rally for Medical Research on Wednesday, September 13- Thursday, September 14, 2017, please let us know at rally@hydroassoc.org.
