As the presidential campaigns heat up, it's time to find out where the candidates stand on health research issues. Research!America has launched our award-winning voter education initiative, YourCandidates-Your Health 2012. This initiative, which can be found at www.yourcandidatesyourhealth.org, gets candidates on the record with their views on health research and displays their responses to a questionnaire on our website. Congressional primaries are beginning; as results of those primaries become known, candidates for Congress will be asked to participate.
Research to improve health is a critical issue for our nation, and Americans deserve to know where candidates stand. Together, we can put the spotlight on health research in the 2012 elections.
