Join AADR and Friends of NIDCR on Tuesday, February 23, 2016 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. for our Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. In a time of limited resources it is vitally important that Congress hears from researchers, patients and students about the value of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR). The AADR and Friends of NIDCR Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill will include a morning key issues briefing and training session; and an afternoon of individual and/or small group meetings with participants' members of Congress and their staff.
The schedule for Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill is designed to allow participants to fly or drive into and out of Washington, D.C., on the same day if feasible and desired. Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA) is the closest airport (5 miles) to Capitol Hill. However, for participants attending from distant locations, an overnight stay may be required. This time of year is extremely busy for tourism in Washington, D.C., and hotel rooms book quickly. If you need a hotel room, please do not wait until the last minute and feel free to reach out to AADR staff for hotel recommendations.
