Campaign for Cures, a national voter education initiative led by Research! America and partner organizations, is elevating the importance of research and innovation this election season. We’re fighting for people’s lives. This country was built on the belief that we can do better, that our children deserve better. Through strategic grassroots activities, communications initiatives and partnerships with preeminent voter education groups, we are raising awareness about the importance of sustaining medical progress. How do we know medical progress will change the world? It already has. New medicine has saved millions of lives but we don’t have all the solutions for complex diseases. Join other research advocates in urging candidates to make faster medical progress a higher national priority. Vote for progress. Believe in better.
