November 15th Day of Action: 21st Century Cures

Posted by Jennifer Huron


On Tuesday, November 15th, take action to support the 21st Century Cures Act! This vital piece of legislation includes billions of dollars in new funding for critical research at the National Institutes of Health, new funding to accelerate drug approval at the Food and Drug Administration, and several provisions such as the OPEN ACT and Rare Pediatric Disease Priority Review Voucher program that could lead to hundreds of new therapies for rare disease patients. We must unite to ensure that Congress gets our message loud and clear. This is our last chance to make Cures a reality. Please call TODAY!

Please take a minute to phone your legislators and share this action alert on social media!
