LCA Partners with CLC on Letter Supporting NIH Budget Increases

March 11, 2008-- LCA joined the National Lung Cancer Partnership, Prevent Cancer Foundation, Lance Armstrong Foundation and other members of the Cancer Leadership Council (CLC) as co-signers of a letter to the United States Senate requesting their support for an amendment to S.Con.Res 70, the FY 2009 Budget Resolution. Proposed by Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA) and Arlen Specter (R-PA) the amendment calls for an increase of $2.1 billion to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) budget. The increase will help sustain preexisting research while also supporting new and innovative research that will lead to better outcomes for all.
