[IP] Fwd: Al Gore Online Tonight (8/10)
Hope to see allot of you here.
>To: email @ redacted
>Subject: Al Gore Online Tonight (8/10)
>Tonight at 9:00 pm EST, Vice President Al Gore will be hosting an online
>town hall meeting at http://www.algore2000.com/townhall.
>According to his website, the Vice President will personally respond to
>questions. This is your opportunity to ask Gore whether he supports
>implementing the final report of the Diabetes Research Working Group and
>an $827 million budget for diabetes research.
>The timing for this chat is perfect. As we recently reported, Congressman
>John Porter has proposed a $1.4 billion increase for NIH this year. The
>Senate will likely propose an even bigger increase, maybe $2
>billion. Now's our chance to persuade the VP that a large share of that
>increase should be used to implement the DRWG.
>Despite the facts, your letters and calls, broad Congressional support and
>hundreds of opportunities in diabetes research that are being missed every
>day, NIH hasn't made plans to implement DRWG. Now it's time to take it to
>the next level.
>As a federal agency, NIH takes its direction from the Clinton and Gore
>administration. As the overall "boss" of NIH, they can direct the agency
>to fully implement DRWG. But they need to hear from us!
>By participating in tonight's online discussion, you can show Vice
>President Gore that diabetes, and the DRWG, are hot issues. If enough
>diabetes advocates participate tonight, Gore will be more likely to direct
>NIH to act.
>Many thanks for your continued support of diabetes advocacy and the
>American Diabetes Association. Please stay in touch and let me know if
>your question gets through to the VP.
>Leading the fight to find a cure for diabetes.
