Important Events and Past Event Recordings
End of Year Appropriations Campaign - November 27 - December 31, 2023
Currently, Congress has the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and Centers for Disease Control and prevention funded at current levels through February 2, 2024. For the last few weeks of the year, our goal is to create a drumbeat of activity letting Congress know that once they return in the new year, they must work in a bipartisan way to finalize funding for cancer research & prevention programs. A list of action items you can complete and to help us make our message loud and clear is listed below.
