Your Candidates-Your Health Poll
As part of the Your Candidates-Your Health constituent education initiative, Research!America and our partners commissioned a national poll featuring questions that correspond to those we asked of Congress. Results of the 2011 poll show strong support for research as a solution to our health and economic challenges.
