Advocacy Action Alert!!

Contact your Senators and ask that they continue to support the inclusion of “scleroderma” as a condition eligible for study through the Department of Defense Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program during the Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 appropriations process.

Senators are currently working on the FY 2017 DoD appropriations bill and deciding which conditions will be included on the next PRMRP eligible conditions list. Being included on the list one year is no guarantee of being included again in the next year. At this critical time, please reach out to the offices of your Senators and ask that they “once again support the inclusion of scleroderma in the DoD PRMRP’s eligible conditions list in FY 2017.”
