Last month 25 You’re the Cure advocates traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the Rally for Medical Research. They joined nearly 300 individuals from 40 different states and the District of Columbia, who represented 125 different organizations. They spent an entire day on Capitol Hill meeting with 80 percent of the Senate offices and more than 1/3rd of the House offices to request that our elected officials provide robust, sustained, and predictable funding increases for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Also, two of our You’re the Cure advocates were featured in an inspirational video was unveiled at the Rally for Medical Research Hill Day breakfast that underscored the importance of the day. Watch it now! http://www.agingresearch.org/rally
