NEW: URGE THE HOUSE TO PASS HISTORIC INSULIN AFFORDABILITY LEGISLATION

On August 7, the US Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes provisions to make insulin more affordable for people with Medicare. The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote on this legislation on Friday, August 12. Margins are slim in the House and we need your help to ensure passage of this historic legislation.

Please join our new campaign to urge your Representative to support the Inflation Reduction Act. It is critical that your Representative hears from you as soon as possible about the importance of passing this legislation. Endocrine Society advocacy helped get us to this point and we want to ensure passage because we cannot lose this opportunity to finally begin to address insulin affordability. Join our campaign today!


URGE CONGRESS TO INCREASE FUNDING FOR NIH

Congress is now considering funding for fiscal year (FY) 2023, which begins October 1. The Endocrine Society is asking Congress to provide $50 billion for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) fiscal year (FY) 2023, a 7.9% increase from the FY 2022 funding level. To increase funding for the NIH, it is critical that all US Representatives and Senators hear from their constituents about this issue. Join our campaign today. 


TELL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO SUPPORT THE RISE ACT

The Endocrine Society is urging Congress to help researchers recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, restart their labs, and continue making progress on important research progress that was interrupted by the pandemic. The most promising vehicle for providing research relief through additional funds is the Research Investment to Spark the Economy (RISE) Act, which was introduced last year and has bipartisan support. The RISE Act would authorize approximately $25 billion in additional funds for research recovery, including nearly $10 billion for the NIH. While the bill has significant bipartisan support – they need more cosponsors to ensure that the Act makes it across the finish line!

Take action in our campaign and tell your Representative support the RISE Act so that our research community can recover from pandemic-related closures and other disruptions. Advocacy matters and if the research community is vocal about their needs, we can ensure that increased federal funds for research are consistent and sustainable.
