Dear Research Advocate:

We are finally seeing action to address the surfeit of regulations placed on the research community. Accountability is essential, but it isn’€™t a function of how thick the red tape is! The Research and Development Efficiency Act, HR 5056, passed the House this week and is pending before the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation.

Dear Research Advocate:

One of the fundamental goals of the Ask Your Candidates! (AYC!) initiative is to ensure that medical progress takes its rightful place among the priorities candidates discuss as they vie for a seat in Congress. To further this and the central, voter education agenda of AYC!, we’€™ve launched an ad campaign on POLITICO.com.

Dear Research Advocate:

’€œNever a dull moment’€ is how one advocate described this year’€™s appropriations cycle as Chairwoman Mikulski, Chairman Rogers, and other key appropriators try every which way to restore some semblance of regular order to the process.

Selfies are a common form of expression on social media. They can be funny, serious, awkward or emotional. They can also be an impactful way of participating in a cause, which is a big reason we are launching a selfies/photo submission project for the Ask Your Candidates! national voter education initiative.

Leading up to Father’€™s Day and as part of National Men’€™s Health Week, the American Cancer Society is raising awareness about risk factors for cancer in men. Among the cancer threats men face, prostate cancer is particularly lethal. In fact, it is the 2nd most deadly cancer for American men behind lung cancer. This year alone in the United States, an estimated 233,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and 29,480 men will die from the disease.
