The current bill proposes to increase research surrounding the diagnosis, early detection, prevention, control and treatment of Tourette syndrome. According to, bill number 3679 proproses “to amend the Public Health Service Act to provide for the expansion, intensification, and coordination of the programs and activities of the National Institutes of Health with respect to Tourette syndrome” (H.R.3679 - 117th Congress, 2021-2022). It amends the Public Health Service Act so that the secretary acting through the National Institution of Health (NIH) director has the authority to allocate funds through grants to private nonprofit and public organizations, who are partaking in research related to Tourette syndrome. The primary goal of this amendment is to intensify the programs and activities of the NIH related to Tourette syndrome in conjunction with research relating to Tourette syndrome. The secretary has the authority to decide, using key factors, what organizations should receive these grants. It will also become the job of the secretary to develop a data collecting system to record the incidence, prevalence, and impact of Tourette syndrome in the United states.

The possible intended outcome of this bill is to improve the quality of life of people with Tourette syndrome by inadvertently improving the treatment and diagnosis of Tourette syndrome. By voting on this petition you are saying you are in support of increasing research surrounding Tourette syndrome in the Untied States.
