In January 2013, all health research agencies could be subject to a multi-billion dollar budget cut! This budget cut, commonly referred to as the sequester, would have a devastating impact on patients and researchers. It could deprive the National Institutes of Health, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Science Foundation, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality of the funding they need to support lifesaving research throughout the country.

Contact your representatives right away and let them know that we cannot allow the sequester to occur. Like this alert on Facebook, and remember to share with your networks.
