Ask Your Senators to Support Parkinson's Research Funding!
- Apr 17 2013
The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about advocating for research funding.
Senators Robert P. Casey Jr. (D-PA) and Richard Burr (R-NC) are circulating a letter in the Senate to support sustained funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Fiscal Year (FY) 2014. It is important that you ask your Senators to show support for critical biomedical research funding by signing the letter.
NIH is the largest funder of Parkinson's research in the world, funding $154 million in Parkinson's research in FY 2012, and this funding crucial to finding new treatments and a cure for Parkinson's disease. It is essential that you act now, as the deadline for Senators to sign is Tuesday, April 23.
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.
