According to Dennis, "the Rally on the Hill for Medical Research 2017, was a great success!" The event was attended by over 400 organizations, including the AHA. The day brought together advocates from across the nation to speak directly with their lawmakers about the importance of medical research. Mr. McMahan, a resident of Freeland, met with his Congressman, John Moolenaar, and others during the event to discuss a $2B increase to NIH funding.
