Today the House of Representatives is debating a $1.6 billion cut to the National Institutes of Health budget. This is a serious threat to our prospects for improved therapies for migraine and other disabling headache disorders. Migraine disease alone impacts 12% of Americans, but the NIH budget for research on migraine and other headache disorders is less than one tenth of one percent of the entire NIH budget. With this kind of proposed cut funding for our disorders could be completely eliminated. Please take action. It's quick and easy. Just follow the link. Please share this with your family & friends.
