Help Stop Funding Cuts to Medical Research
February 22, 2013 – Funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is in serious jeopardy. Without congressional action, NIH will receive a $1.6 billion cut when sequestration begins on Friday, March 1.
It is critical that all Representatives and Senators hear from patients about the impact that inadequate funding has on the development of cures and treatments for serious diseases and the need for them to take a balanced approach to reducing the deficit that doesn’t further cut NIH and other core federal programs.
