We All Need to Care About Supporting Research

The tremendous progress that has been made in medical care delivery is a direct result of our nation’s investment in health related research.  In 2011, according to Research!America, biomedical and health R&D spending (all sources) declined by more than $4 billion or 3 percent.  Each of us has a vital stake in the continued advancement of innovations that, when used responsibly, will improve health care quality, lower health care costs and save lives.  I urge you to be an advocate by supporting the work of organizations like Research!America.
