Your voice needs to be heard. Congress needs to know that cuts in arthritis research funding do more harm than good. Consider using the following points when contacting your representative:
- I'm a constituent that cares about arthritis research - it is a disabling disease that costs our country $128 billion annually.
- Cuts to research and prevention funding do more harm than good.
- Cuts in research will limit our ability to discover a cure.
- As your constituent, I ask that you please preserve the federal investment in research and prevention.
