NIH Director seeks comments!

NIH Director Welcomes Public Comments (via Genetic Alliance)

Earlier this month, National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Dr. Francis Collins held a town hall meeting with constituency groups to outline a vision for the NIH, including putting science to work for the benefit of healthcare reform and advocating for a stronger US global health presence. In addition to responding to input during the meeting, Dr. Collins invited members of constituency groups to follow up with additional comments about issues facing their organization or community that should be brought to the attention of Dr. Collins and the NIH. The Institute is accepting comments on a rolling basis, and Genetic Alliance is collecting individual responses to inform our comments until Friday, October 9.

To submit your comments, please send them to the NIH at NIH-LISTENS@nih.gov and copy NCIAdvocacy@mail.nih.gov. To submit them to Genetic Alliance, please send them to Kristi Zonno, Director of Genetics and Health Policy, at kzonno@geneticalliance.org.
