This week, hundreds of
advocates participated in the Parkinson’s Policy Forum — and today
many of them are holding virtual meetings with legislators to ask for
an increase in federal investment in Parkinson’s research. And you
can join these advocates (from wherever you are) to help amplify our
message by emailing your legislators now.
Right now, members of
Congress are working on the federal budget for the new fiscal year
starting October 1. They need to hear directly from their
constituents (i.e., you!) about the importance of increasing funding
for Parkinson’s research.
In recent years, we’ve seen incredible progress in Parkinson’s drug
development, but we still need better treatments and a cure. The
Parkinson’s Research Program at the Department of Defense is key to
advancing critical progress.
