MN Rally for Research
The Minnesota Rally For Research is happening on Saturday, August 5 from 1:00 to 2:30 pm at the Minnesota State Capitol in Saint Paul. It’s one of many that will be taking place across the country in August.
Federal funding for research is a bi-partisan issue. Cancer affects the families of both Democrats and Republicans, and without NIH support, cancer research won't happen.
At the Rally for Research, scientists, patients who have benefited from medical research and their families will tell their stories to the legislators and public. Masonic Cancer Center will have a special presence at the podium, as two of our own will be addressing the crowd:
- Masonic Cancer Center Director, Douglas Yee, MD, will be speaking on the fundamental need for NIH research funding
- Masonic Cancer Center Community Advisory Board Chair, sarcoma survivor, and advocate, Ruth Bachman will be speaking about how she personally benefitted from federally-funded research
Please join Dr. Yee, Ruth Bachman, and many others at the Rally for Research on August 5 at the MN State Capitol to come together as a community and as a nation to reject cuts to cancer research funding and support more funding for lifesaving work.
