|Our activists ready to meet with their members of Congress|
This year, our six volunteers advocated for three issues:
- Funding for MS research through the National Institutes of Health and the MS Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program;
- The “Ensuring Access to Quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology Act,” to make it easier for people with MS to access the mobility devices they need; and
- The “Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act / 21st Century Cures Initiative,” to collect data on neurological conditions like MS to help us better understand the disease and obtain more accurate incidence and prevalence rates.

Congratulations to our activists for a successful trip and for bringing awareness of key issues affecting people living with MS to our members of Congress. Thank you for your commitment to our work and for serving as dedicated leaders in the MS movement. You help us support the Society’s goals to shape federal policies and programs to better meet the needs of people living with MS.
