Ask Congress to Preserve Vital Funding for Lupus Programs

13 Dec

As the U.S. House and Senate make their final decisions on funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we need your voice to ensure programs vital to people with lupus are preserved.  Federal investment in biomedical research at the NIH benefits people with lupus every day.  And the National Lupus Patient Registry Project, funded by the CDC, is seeking answers to key questions that can help researchers better understand and measure disease burden and help incentivize investment in the development in new, safe and effective therapies for lupus. 

Take Action today!  Click here to e-mail your members of Congress and urge them to preserve funding for the NIH and CDC.  Research advancements are critical for better understanding the causes and finding a cure for lupus, and we cannot afford to stall progress.
