[IPp] Fwd: ACTION NEEDED: Please Sign Petition Opposing Cuts to NIH Funding

B B 
      Please sign the petition opposing cuts in NIH funding.

 JDRF partners with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to find a cure for
diabetes and its complications through the support of research. There are
proposals in Congress that would cut NIH funding, which could impact promising
research on new approaches to diagnose, prevent, and treat diabetes. Worse,
the cuts could be a devastating blow to the millions of patients that rely
every day on NIH for the possibility of a healthier tomorrow and to the next
generation of promising U.S. scientists.B 

The petition we encourage you to sign was created by the Ad Hoc Group for
Medical Research, of which JDRF is a long-time member.B  The Ad Hoc Group
consists of over 300 patient and voluntary health groups, medical and
scientific societies, academic and research organizations and industry.B  The
coalitionbs purpose is to fight for strong NIH funding overall so that all
research benefits.

We ask that you take the time to sign the petition to indicate your support
for the National Institutes of Health.B  Please share this with your friends
and family and ask them to sign as well.

(Note: If a donation page pops up after you sign, please do not feel obligated
