The August Congressional recess is a chance to advocate with our members of Congress on issues important to the brain tumor community. Please view the 2020 Legislative Agenda for an overview of all of the issues we are prioritizing this year.
For the 2019 August Recess, we will advocate for increased funding for medical research for Fiscal Year 2020 (beginning on October 1, 2019) and for support and passage of the Palliative Care & Hospice Education and Training Act (H.R. 647/S. 2080). You may find full issue briefs as part of our Leave-Behind Packet here. Helpful talking points for these issues can be found here.
