Tell Congress that Americans should decide whether life-saving research is important

Research that protects kids and patients is on the chopping-block. Why?

Legislation is being developed in the House of Representatives that would severely restrict or eliminate the appropriations funding mechanism for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Administration on Children and Families, the National Center for Health Statistics and other programs charged with protecting children and patients. If the legislation passes with no alternate means of keeping this work going, Americans would lose the benefit of research that translates medical progress into safe healthcare, makes sure new medical treatments reach patients in rural as well as urban areas, prevents deadly medical errors, and protects at-risk children in the foster care system.

Help nip this legislative effort in the bud.  Before Members of Congress take away access to information that saves the lives of children and other Americans, they should explain why saving those lives isn’t important.

Take action now.
