Legislative Fly-In
The 2014 ARM Legislative Fly-In on April 29 included participation from 22 different state delegations, the most in the event's history. This increase in interest was largely due to the introduction of the 2014 Regenerative Medicine Promtion Act to both the Senate and House of Representatives. The full-day event was dedicated to meeting with key members of Congress and Administration officials to describe the immense near-term potential of regenerative medicine and ask for support for the Bill.
