On Friday, June 22, U.S. Representative Peter T. King (R-NY, 2nd District) spoke on the floor of the House of Representatives to recognize June as Scleroderma Awareness Month.  

Representative King is the lead sponsor of H.R. 4638, National Commission on Scleroderma and Fibrotic Diseases Act of 2017, to evaluate and make recommendations regarding improvements to the coordination and advancement of NIH-supported research activities related to fibrosis and fibrotic diseases.

You can join the effort to advocate for additional support for research!
