Parkinson’s Data Collection Bill Introduced!

The Parkinson’s Action Network (PAN) is excited to announce that the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act of 2015 has been introduced by Rep. Michael C. Burgess (R-TX) and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD).
1-14-15The bill will create a data collection system at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and other neurological disorders.
This system at the CDC would provide data on the epidemiology, incidence, and prevalence of this progressive, neurodegenerative disease. Better data would allow for future planning of health care needs, detect changes in health practices, assess disease burden, promote education about neurological diseases, and support a wide range of research initiatives.
Now, PAN needs your help to ensure this legislation gets support in the House.
Ask your Representative to co-sponsor H.R. 292, the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act of 2015! Take Action!
