Please help in our lobby efforts to get increased funding for arthritis research. May is national arthritis month. Write your two senators and as many representatives as possible asking them to support increasing by l5% the NIH funding and especially the funding to arthritis research. The past decade has produced new biologic disease modifiers and an explosion of knowledge of the genetic and cellular involvement of arthritis diseases. This research promises significant potential for treating other dread diseases such as congestive heart failure. We must find a cure for the millions in pain. The impact of arthritis is the equivalent of a mild-to- moderate recession on the national economy. thanks, we arthritis victims count on you.
