Tell PARADE and Research!America that CFS is important to you!
Advocacy Alert: 3/14/2007
How do your senators’ and representatives’ views on health-care issues stack up against your own concerns? A new initiative, Your Congress-Your Health—sponsored by the nonpartisan, nonprofit health research group Research!America—will ask members of Congress to complete a questionnaire about where they stand on medical research, insurance issues and other health-related topics. This past weekend, PARADE Magazine featured Your Congress-Your Health in its "Intelligence Report." You can read the feature story at http://www.parade.com/articles/editions/2007/edition_03-11-2007/Intelligence_Report.
Now PARADE is hosting a message board on its website to gather public input on the most important health topics for Congress to respond to. Let's work together to have CFS included among the issues Congress is asked about. Submit your experience in the COMMENTS section at http://www.parade.com/articles/editions/2007/edition_03-11-2007/Your_Congress_Your_Health#comments. Research!America will craft its questionnaire for Congress based on the comments submitted.
The CFIDS Association of America is proud to be a member of Research!America and to work with them on initiatives like this one.
