National Multiple Sclerosis Society
Urge your U.S. Senators to support the bipartisan Durbin-Blunt Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (S.1519). This Amendment will remove language that threatens the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs, including the Multiple Sclerosis Research Program. This innovative medical research is critical to moving us one step closer to a world free of MS!
Support the Durbin-Blunt Amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)
Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent and as an MS activist, I urge you to support the Durbin-Blunt Amendment to protect the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs at the Department of Defense. The CDMRP fills research gaps by funding high impact, high-risk and high gain projects that other research agencies like the National Institutes of Health may not fund. The MS Research Program (MSRP) examines gaps in knowledge about the biological basis of disease progression, diagnosis and treatment, and biomarkers for preclinical detection.
