Where do your candidates stand on research issues?
Advocacy Alert: 09/18/2006
Research!America, a leading research advocacy organization, announces Your Candidates–Your Health, the first national voter education initiative focused exclusively on Congressional candidates’ positions on investment in medical, health and scientific research and other research-related policy issues. Please visit www.yourcandidatesyourhealth.org and use the convenient search tools to see where your candidates stand.
Your Candidates–Your Health Web site also features the findings of our latest public opinion poll, many of which correspond to questions asked of candidates. The results demonstrate that research-related issues will be important in the November elections.
If your candidates have not yet responded to the Your Candidates–Your Health questionnaire, please encourage them to do so. Available Web site and e-mail addresses are provided on each candidate’s page at www.yourcandidatesyourhealth.org. An easy way to give your candidates all of the details on the initiative is by sending the link to R!A’s recent ad in The Hill newspaper. Responses from candidates will be accepted up until the November election.
PARADE magazine will draw the attention of its 75 million readers to R!A’s Voter Guide in mid-October.
