Sign on to support an end to the NIH/FDA hiring freeze!

President Trump instituted an immediate hiring freeze on January 23rd, signing a presidential memorandum that would affect a large swath of the executive branch including the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Unfortunately, this freeze will significantly hamper research into rare disease treatments and the subsequent approval process. We are seeking patient organizations to have our voice heard. 

Sign your patient organization on to the letter below and lend your support to ensuring that the NIH and FDA have the resources they need to support rare disease patients!
