It is important to situate the agency on a path of sustainable and predictable investment in biomedical research. Congress needs to hear that message from you NOW.

It only takes five minutes to ask your Members of Congress to support $37 billion for NIH funding in fiscal year 2011.

Copy and paste this information at the bottom of the editable text:

      Sudden cardiac death is one of the top five leading causes of death in young adults. SADS conditions are genetic arrhythmias that lead to SCA in young adults. Most SCD in children is hereditary and most cardiac arrhythmias and structural defects that may cause SCD in the young are treatable, thus more research is needed to determine those at risk and save lives.
The warning signs of SADS conditions are:
  • Family history of unexpected, unexplained sudden death in a young person;
  • Fainting (syncope) or seizure during exercise, excitement or startle;
  • Consistent or unusual chest pain and/or shortness of breath during exercise
Please contact 1-800-STOP SAD or www.StopSADS.org for any questions about SADS conditions.
Please let us know if you contacted your Representative by emailing Heidi or simply by replying to this email.
Thank you for taking the time to support this meaningful issue. Together we can save lives and make a difference for science!
