FY 2017 House Appropriations Testimony

May 19, 2016

FY2017 Senate Appropriations Committee Public Testimony Submitted By The Endocrine Society For The Subcommittee On Labor, Health And Human Services, Education, And Related Agencies Addressing The National Institutes Of Health

"The Endocrine Society recommends that the Subcommittee provide at least $35 billion in funding for NIH in the FY 2017 Labor-HHS-Education Appropriations bill. This funding recommendation represents the minimum investment necessary to avoid further loss of promising research and at the same time allows the NIH’s budget to keep pace with biomedical inflation. It is critical that we continue to invest in biomedical research to improve the Nation’s future financial situation. Rising healthcare costs threaten to consume an increasing percentage of the United States’ GDP and also the individual budgets of workers and businesses. The cost of diabetes, in particular, represents a staggering $245 billion in 2012 alone."
