Event Detail



 March 6-7, 2017        Albany NY


Once a year, NewYorkBIO hosts Bioscience Advocacy Day, inviting life science and health executives from across New York to come to Albany for a day of legislative briefings and advocacy.

2017 Advocacy Day will occur March 6-7, 2017. We are looking forward to another great day of engaging with Members of the State Legislature and their senior staff on the most important legislative issues facing the biotechnology industry in New York, including fair pricing, biosimilars, and GMO regulation.

NewYorkBIO will schedule all legislative meetings and provide attendees with a legislative briefing prior to their visits to the Statehouse. Attendees meet in small groups with the legislators, agencies, key offices and committees, and senior staff. Each group will be accompanied by a NewYorkBIO staff representative to all visits.

There is no registration fee for executives attending Bioscience Advocacy Day.

It is always our goal to make the Bioscience Advocacy Day as easy as possible for our visiting attendees; please do not hesitate to contact us with questions.
