Your Congress - Your Health

There will be no bigger topic on the political agenda this summer than health reform. The decisions that Congress makes will have long lasting effects for all of us - which makes it even more important for us to be proactive citizens. For this reason, Research!America is relaunching its constituent education initiative Your Congress - Your Health for the 111th Congress.

Every member of Congress has been invited to complete a brief questionnaire about research and other issues that affect our health. Help us achieve our goal of getting everyone on the record by visiting and sending them a message urging them to participate.

Just put in your zip code and all of your elected officials will appear. Check out their responses, and if they haven't already responded, click the link (it will redirect you) to send them a quick message. It took me less than 5 minutes, and I personalized the message that went to both my senators and my representative.

We'll be talking about Your Congress - Your Health on the blog from time to time, but for regular updates (including alerts when your members of Congress respond), join us on Facebook.
