There is one last opportunity for Congress to increase Parkinson's research funding at the Department of Defense (DoD).
Your lawmakers can register their support of the Parkinson’s Research Program at the DoD by signing onto a "Dear Colleague" letter that is circulating now.
Parkinson’s research funding at the Department of Defense once was at $27 million. Over the past seven years annual funding has been stuck at $16 million. We need to get this back up, and back up soon.
Please email Congress today and ask them to dedicate $25 million to the Parkinson’s Research Program at DoD for the coming year.
