    ACT TODAY: Urge Congress to Support Biomedical Research

    Date: July 30, 2014

    As you are aware, federal funding of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is in jeopardy. In an effort to educate Members of Congress about the impact of further cuts on biomedical research, the Coalition for Health Funding, which represents more than 90 public health advocacy organizations, recently released a report documenting the dire consequences of Congress's deep cuts to public health programs in recent years. "Faces of Austerity: How Budget Cuts Hurt America's Health" illustrates the impact of budget cuts across the public health continuum, particularly the lost opportunities resulting from government austerity measures.

    Please help educate Congress about the value of biomedical research and the need to protect NIH from further cuts by participating in this online advocacy campaign. Simply click the “Take Action” button below to send a pre-populated, customizable messaged to your members of Congress today. .

    Thank you in advance for doing your part to improve public health.
