As the nation ages and more Americans are diagnosed with chronic brain disorders, the federal government must facilitate innovative approaches to help patients. If we hope to address the human and financial costs of brain diseases, we need to encourage Congress to prioritize biomedical research to identify cures and treatments for these disorders and streamline the process for getting those discoveries into the hands of individuals who need them.
The American Brain Coalition and other brain-related organizations and professionals are calling on Congress to create a Neuroscience Center of Excellence at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to create an environment to foster patient-centered decision-making and bring new safe and effective treatments for brain diseases and disorders to those who need them.
The time to act is now. Congress may soon consider 21st Century Cures legislation focused on delivering innovation to patients. Customize the sample letter—make sure to share your personal story!—and send it to your Member of Congress to urge his or her support for a Neuroscience Center of Excellence at the FDA.
Thank you for taking action!
