Medical Research is Far-Reaching. It Saves Lives, Provides Hope, Fuels our Economy and More.

Recently, progress has been made in Congress that must not be confused for victory but is momentum to be capitalized on. For instance, the bipartisanship and compromise that we’ve seen in Congress is the first step in a long journey that is necessary for medical and health research to flourish and which provides temporary relief from sequestration. Now is the time to carry forward.

Advocates cannot tiptoe around other far-reaching truths: Our global competitiveness is at risk, young scientists are leaving the profession as fewer grants are awarded, Americans are dying, health care costs are exploding, and the facts prove it. Investing in innovation, at levels set to match and exceed scientific opportunity, is the best way to improve the well-being (both health and economic) of future generations. Send a message to Congress now to maximize funding for agencies that sponsor medical and health research!

Take action now.
