Rally to Support Research Funding!

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

From PAN:

On April 8, thousands will gather in Washington, DC to Rally for Medical Research - a unified call to our nation's policymakers to make medical research funding a national priority. This call to action will raise awareness about the critical need for a sustained investment in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to improve health, spur progress, inspire hope, and save lives.

The Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) is a partnering organization and encourages you to participate in the Rally for Medical Research, as NIH funding is critical to finding new treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease. Even if you cannot be in Washington on April 8, the rally will be live-streaming on YouTube. Tune in to hear from great speakers including NIH Director Francis Collins, M.D., Ph.D., Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro (D-CT), and Congressman Chris Van Hollen (D-MD)! Watch here.

When: Monday, April 8, 2013 from 11:00 AM -12:15 PM ET.

Where: Carnegie Library Grounds at Mt. Vernon Square, 801 K Street, NW, Washington, DC 20001 or online at
