Virtual Lobby Day Action #5
Secretary for Health Michael Leavitt has a CFS Advisory Committee (CFSAC) to provide guidance on the most effective use of Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) resources to fight CFS. The CFSAC meets on May 16-17 to hear agency updates, subcommittee reports and testimony from the public, and to discuss funding priorities for research and education. Write to Secretary Leavitt and to Dr. John Agwunobi, the Assistant Secretary for Health, to let them know that you care about the work of this committee and depend on the implementation of the CFSAC's recommendations. One letter does it all.
Since the May 11 launch of VIrtual Lobby Day, 2,929 have been sent through the Association's Grassroots Action Center to lawmakers, public health officials like Secretary Leavitt, and media contacts. Let's generate even more impact! Send your messages today!
