In an opinion piece for The Hill, Lasker President Claire Pomeroy discusses the urgent need to include funding in the federal budget for all the agencies that support vital medical research – including the NIH and beyond (NSF, CDC, AHRQ, and more).

“We must support the NIH and the entire network of federal agencies and institutions whose mission is to ensure the public’s health. This will require an outpouring of demand from Americans everywhere, asking that we as a nation prioritize the advancement of science that can mitigate disease and suffering.”
