ARM's 7th Annual Dinner & Legislative Fly-In

Annual Dinner - May 24, 2016
Join us at the St. Regis Washington DC for one of ARM's premier events celebrating major accomplishments over the past year in the regenerative medicine and advanced therapies field. This intimate dinner recognizes the key corporate, scientific and policy leaders in our sector – including members of Congress, patient advocates, disease-foundation executives and other industry champions. Over 150 of the field's constituents attend not only to network, but also to hear from truly inspirational speakers who are propelling the sector forward.

Legislative Fly-In - May 25, 2016
ARM’s Legislative Fly-In commences the morning following the Annual Dinner. Last year's Legislative Fly-In included participation from 70+ ARM members from 22 unique state delegations, the most in the event's history. We hope to build off that success and continue to engage both new ARM members as well as members of Congress to continue to expand our legislative impact. Each participant will be assigned to a group based on state/districts and will meet with key members of Congress and Administration officials to describe the immense near-term potential of advanced therapies and the need for legislation that supports the development of life saving treatments.
