MS activist Fiona Hoey is featured on the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) website for her notable advocacy and active participation as a consumer reviewer for both the Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program and the Multiple Sclerosis Research Program (MSRP). As a result of a bold grassroots campaign led by MS activists just a couple of years ago, Congress has provided nearly $10 million for research funding to study the potential link between combat service and developing MS. Fiona plays a vital role in the process, sitting on panels with prominent researchers and offering a strong consumer voice in the selection high-risk, high-reward proposals for the MSRP. A volunteer with the New York City-Southern New York Chapter, Fiona is certainly helping us move toward a world free of MS.
In FY 2011, MS activists are urging Congress to provide $15 million for MS research in the CDMRP. Click here to take action today and urge your Senators' and Representative's support.
