IBD Research Funding at Stake: Take Action Now

This week, the House of Representatives and the Senate will work to pass funding bills for the entire government for fiscal year 2014. Currently, Congress is considering providing funding for IBD research at the Department of Defense’s Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP)
 The Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program actively:
  • Provides expanded research at the Department of Defense
  • Highlights the impact of IBD on service members

This research, if funded, will work to find new biomarkers for IBD.

Contact your legislator today and ask them to include IBD in the Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program.
