Tell President Obama and Congress that medical research is critical to the nation’s health.
We, the undersigned believe that medical research is leading the way towards important discoveries that improve people's health and save lives. The promise of medical research has never been greater for Americans suffering from serious illnesses like cancer, autism, diabetes, Alzheimer's and heart disease.
To realize this hope fully, we must increase federal support for medical research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in the next budget year. The NIH supports researchers in every state. Medical research is not only the beginning of hope for those suffering from serious illnesses but also one of the best investments our nation can make in our future.
We urge Congress and the Administration to make increased, sustained support for NIH one of our country’s highest priorities. It will pay a lifetime of dividends in better health and quality of life for all Americans.
