Today, June 7, join rare disease advocates around the country and tell your Senators to support the Senate Cures Legislation. This month is the last chance for Senate Cures to pass before the Senate is out of session until after the November election.
Senate Cures (also called the Senate Innovation Act for Healthier Americans) is the companion legislation to the 21st Century Cures Act, which passed in the House last year.
This vital package includes billions of dollars to help the rare disease community, including new funding for critical research at the NIH and to accelerate drug approval at the FDA, and several other provisions.
NORD is proud to work with other advocates across the country to unite and make sure the Senate gets our message loud and clear!
Time is running out and we need your help to move the Senate Cures Legislation! Join advocates from across the country and call the Senate TODAY!
- Use social media to add your voice!
- Call your members of Congress to show your support for the Senate Cures Legislation
- Email your members of Congress and urge them to support this piece of legislation
