Send A Letter to The NIH, Takes About Two Minutes
« on: December 08, 2010, 10:34:11 AM »
The AIDS Policy Project is doing a letter-writing campaign asking Francis Collins, the head of the NIH to increase funding for HIV/AIDS Cure Research.

The goal is 500 letters and they are currently only halfway there.

It takes a couple of minutes to send.

Here is the link:

http://www.aidspolicyproject.org/

PS: There are 2 other threads about this campaign. I started this one to remind everyone it's still not too late to send even after AIDS Day and It seems the letters can be sent to Dr. Collins online, not only via snail mail.

Just Sent Mine.....I think researchers are making good progress....3% of the budget towards a cure is very disheartening.
