Act Now: Urge Your Senators to Support DoD Parkinson's Research
Help Secure $16 million for Parkinson's Research!
On June 20, the House of Representatives passed its version of the Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 Defense appropriations bill, which includes $16 million for the Department of Defense (DoD) Parkinson's research program – and now the Senate is expected to begin work on its version of the Defense bill on July 15.
Your outreach made a difference in the House – and your voice is needed again to ensure this critical program is fully funded in FY 2015.
Contact your Senators today and ask them to support $16 million for Parkinson's research at DoD.
Thanks to the hard work of Parkinson's advocates from across the country, this program has remained fully funded despite fiscal challenges. We must ensure that DoD Parkinson's research remains a priority as Congress makes funding decisions this year. Learn more about the program.
