97 Members of the House Support MS Research Funding in the CDMRP

The Society is pleased and thankful that 97 members of the U.S. House of Representatives have signaled their support for MS research funding within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) by signing on to a Dear Colleague letter circulated by Congressmen Russ Carnahan (MO-3) and Michael Burgess, MD (TX-26).

Such widespread support does not just happen—it is a direct result of the bold and dedicated work of MS activists done both at the recent Public Policy Conference and back home. This is a particularly outstanding achievement, given the many priorities Congress is handling at the moment.

Please take a moment to call or write a thank you to the House Members listed on this page that supported us this year. Stay tuned to learn about and take action on a similar Dear Colleague letter that will be circulated in the Senate!
