Hill Day

Each year, ASTCT leaders and volunteers from all over the country are meeting with their respective members of Congress to advocate for patient access to lifesaving transplant and cell therapy treatments and methods of care.

In 2024, ASTCT will be returning to the Hill September 9-10. The Committee on Government Relations is currently planning key issues to discuss during the 2024 Hill Day. If you are interested in participating in Hill Day or learning more about our advocacy efforts, please contact Alycia Maloney, Director of Government Relations, amaloney@astct.org.

In 2023, ASTCT discussed the following issues

  • Assistance with FDA drug shortages
  • Supporting the Donor Leave Act (H.R. 3024)
  • Requiring state Medicaid programs that authorize out-of-state care, to accept active Medicare enrollment, to make payment
  • Increased funding to the National Institutes of Health (NIH)
