The MU School of Medicine will be a Hill Day partner during this year’s "Rally for Medical Research Hill Day" on Sept. 22 in Washington, D.C. The Rally for Medical Research Hill Day brings representatives of the medical community to Capitol Hill to call on our nation's policy makers to make funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) a national priority.

"We are proud to be a partner at this year’s rally," said Patrick Delafontaine, MD, the Hugh E. and Sarah D. Stephenson Dean of the MU School of Medicine. "There is an urgent need for continued investments to the NIH to spur more research progress and, ultimately, save more lives."

Co-sponsored by the Association of American Medical Colleges and the American Association for Cancer Research, the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day is supported by more than 300 national organizations and institutions each year.
