#UCSFStandsUp Rally for Medical Research Digital Advocacy Day

Why is NIH funding important to you? How has NIH helped you advance life-saving research?

Share your story with members of Congress. Join UC’s digital advocacy day and Rally for Medical Research Hill Day!

On Thursday, September 19, tweet at your Members of Congress about the importance of robust, sustained, and predictable annual NIH funding increases. 

Follow the @UCSF Twitter account for more information throughout the day. 

Help ensure Congress knows NIH funding must be a priority in the federal budget. Tell Congress why a $2.5 billion increase in NIH funding in the 2020 budget is crucial to our ability to deliver cutting edge discoveries, innovations, treatments, and cures. 

UCSF Advocates will also be organizing advocates at UCSF Postdoc Slam on September 19. Stop by our table for creative ideas of how to advocate for funding.
