Thank you to everyone who reached out to their Senate and House members about stopping consolidation of vital Duchenne programs at the CDC! Members of both the House (PDF) and the Senate (PDF) sent a strong message to Dr. Friedan on why they believe Congress spoke clearly in the FY 2012 Consolidated Appropriations Bill. They stress that it is incumbent upon the CDC to sufficiently demonstrate to the disability community, partner organizations, and members of Congress how consolidating the programs of NCBDDD will allow CDC to continue to meet the needs and provide essential elements of support for individuals with disabilities before moving forward with the plan.
Thank you to all our Advocates for reaching out to your members! Your continued work is having a tremendous impact.
Ryan Fischer, Director of Outreach & Advocacy
