NAMI Urges President Obama to Support Increases for NIH & NIMH
National Medical Research Day is October 21

NAMI is joining advocates from across the nation in asking President Obama to make medical research for improving health care a priority and support robust funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH).

To coincide with National Medical Research Day on Wednesday, October 21, NAMI and other illness and patient advocacy groups are rallying advocates to contact the White House this week in support of significant annual increases for NIH.

Now is a particularly important time for President Obama to hear from research advocates because he is working with his administration to determine the FY 2011 budget priorities.

See this Action Alert to send a message to President Obama on NIH funding.
