Research!America recently announced their 2014 Advocacy Award Honorees who will be formally recognized at the 18th Annual Ceremony on March 12, 2014, at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. Joining actress and mental health advocate Glenn Close; human genome scientist Leroy Hood; Kathy Giusti, who founded and runs the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation; and the leaders of the Progeria Research Foundation in receiving this award, is a humbling experience.

Given the critical budget debates ahead for our nation, research advocates like Research!America need and deserve our support more than ever! The health of our nation’s people requires continual scientific innovation that is translated into value-added interventions that are responsibly used by health professionals and their patients. Research is integral at every step in this process. We cannot afford to take the resources necessary to achieve this vision for granted. Please make your voice heard in the debates that are before us by contacting Research!America at www.researchamerica.org.
