The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about advocating for critical research funding.

What's "sequestration" and why should I call tomorrow?
Unless Congress acts before January 2, devastating across-the-board cuts, also known as known as sequestration, will slash $2.5 billion in critical research funding that goes toward finding better treatments and a cure for Parkinson's and many other diseases at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. In fiscal year 2013, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
