Advocacy Day

Advocacy DayDespite a brief government shutdown, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, medical residents and professors from 13 states and four countries flew into Washington, D.C. on Feb. 9 to communicate the need for consistent, sustainable and robust funding for NIH.

ARVO Advocacy Day is an annual opportunity for students and established researchers to share their science with their representatives, describe how their work and careers depend on federal funding and invite policymakers to their labs.
