PAN Alert: Thank Your Representative for Supporting Parkinson's Research
- Apr 07 2014
The Parkinson's Disease Foundation (PDF) has received another important update from the Parkinson's Action Network (PAN) about increased federal Parkinson's research funding.
Thanks to your outreach, over 50 bipartisan members of the House of Representatives signed onto a letter requesting $16 million for the Department of Defense (DoD) Parkinson's Research program in Fiscal Year (FY) 2015, including your Representative. That's over 10 percent of the entire body of the House and a stunning show of support in a tough fiscal year for a program that means so much to our military and the broader Parkinson's community. Your emails and calls really made a difference!
As we salute your efforts, we also ask that you take a moment to thank your Representative for his/her support for Parkinson's disease research. At a time when every signature matters, we are very grateful to have such a strong group of Members stand with us in advocating for the DoD program.
Please contact your Representative today and show him/her your appreciation for supporting Parkinson's research at the DoD.
PAN is the voice of the Parkinson's community in Washington, DC. In fiscal year 2014, PDF is supporting PAN with a grant of $200,000.
