URGENT ACTION ALERT: SUPPORT INCREASED FUNDING FOR POST-VIRAL-DISEASE RESEARCH INTO ME/CFS!
“Chronic neurological problems [like ME/CFS] have been tied to other types of coronaviruses in the past…We must really look hard, particularly with these types of coronaviruses, for chronic effects that are in the neurological category.”
– Dr. Mady Hornig, Associate Professor of Epidemiology at the Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health
Thanks to your hard work during ME/CFS Advocacy Week, the U.S. Senate is currently circulating our request to include ME/CFS research funding in the next COVID-19 package.
Ask your Senator to sign-on to this effort today!
Our champion, Senator Ed Markey, is leading our initiative to include ME/CFS research funding in future COVID-19 response legislation. If successful, this request would bolster ME/CFS research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by including an additional $60 million for expanded research opportunities looking at connections between ME/CFS and COVID-19 survivors.
It is essential that as many Senators as possible join this action in a united voice to call for increased funding for post-viral-disease research into ME/CFS.
Please contact your Senators TODAY and ask them to ask them to sign-on to this effort.
Use the form below to send a message to your SENATORS to urge their support.
