Activities of the Friends
With programmatic activities operated out of the American Association for Dental, Oral, and Craniofacial Research (AADOCR), FNIDCR helps represent the interests of patients, researchers, educators, clinicians and students and the value they find in NIDCR and its critical research.
Activities of the Friends include:
- Advocating on behalf of NIDCR on Capitol Hill, including sending joint letters to and coordinating visits with members of Congress
- Providing oral health policy and legislative analyses
- Hosting and participating in events to demonstrate the importance of NIDCR-funded research
- Championing patients through the Friends of NIDCR’s Patient Advocacy Council
