Members of Congress Need to Make a Commitment to Medical Research

We Need to Make that Happen

Congress will be making funding decisions for all or part of FY14 in September, and it may also decide whether to eliminate, modify or simply leave in place the annual, arbitrary budget cuts known as sequestration. If we want the federal government to continue to adequately seed the research pipeline so that researchers can find treatments and cures for deadly diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s, Congress needs to hear from us. Now. Tell your representatives in Congress to speak out and fight for the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the other health agencies that spur medical progress and safeguard the health and safety of Americans day in and day out.

Take action here.

  1. Thanks for sharing this information! I do hope that more people are willing to speak up in support of funding for the NIH. It sad to think so much promising research could go to waste because the funding has been cut. That could mean millions of lives that are not saved in the not-too-distant future.
