Maintain Funding for MS Research
Federal funding for life-changing medical research continues to erode – particularly with the recent enactment of the across-the-board cuts known as sequestration. To drive progress and pursue breakthroughs in MS research during this time of enormous scientific and medical opportunity, we must persistently remind Congress to support research funding through the National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense’s MS Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program.
On April 8, Americans came together to Rally for Medical Research – a unified call to our nation’s policymakers to make critical medical research funding a national priority. Sustained investment in medical research will improve our nation’s health, spur progress, inspire hope and improve lives. Wisconsinites joined that call by signing letters to state and local representatives in April and May, asking for their continued support as well. Keep encouraging that support. Reach out to your members of Congress and ask them to work together to preserve the nation’s investment in medical research and the health of the American people.
