Where Do Your Candidates Stand on Biomedical Research Funding?
Despite the fact that Americans consistently describe medical, health, and scientific research as important to them, just eight percent say they are very well informed about their elected officials’ positions on these issues. Research!America sponsors a voter education initiative, Your Candidates – Your Health, that gets candidates on the record with their views on health and biomedical research.
Asking candidates to complete this survey serves as a reminder that biomedical research is an issue that matters to our community. Click here to reach out to candidates (incumbents as well as challengers) in your state and district and ask them to complete the survey. If your candidates have already completed the survey, you can thank them for doing so which, again, emphasizes to them the importance of health and biomedical research to you, as a voter.
