  • U.S.A. Wednesday August 20 Call In Day to Support the TS CARE;Act in Cong

    This message is posted on behalf of our Tourette partner The Tourette Syndrome Association (U.S.A) and is not applicable in Canada

    Voice Your Support!

    On Wednesday, August 20, 2014 (9-5 Est) Give a Collective and Powerful Voice to the Collaborative Academic Research Efforts for Tourette Syndrome Act (H.R. 4221/S.637).

    H.R. 4221 / S. 637, also known as the CARE Act continues to gain momentum in Congress. Senator Charles Schumer, the third-ranking Senate Democrat and Chairman of the Senate Rules Committee recently became a cosponsor in order to show support for his constituents living with Tourette Syndrome. His support, plus the addition of 16 Congressmen as cosponsors as of the end of July are a sign of the growing support for TS research on Capitol Hill.

    The CARE Act would:
    • Expand, intensify, and coordinate the National Institute of Health (NIH) programs and activities regarding scientific research on Tourette Syndrome.
    • Establish 4-6 Collaborative TS Research Centers.
    • Collect data on the prevalence, and impact of Tourette Syndrome in the US and the availability of medical and social services for individuals and families with Tourette Syndrome
    • Co-Sponsorship of H.R. 4221 / S. 637 is a crucial step in passing this bill into law.



    Talk Now With Your US Congress Representatives, and let us know how it went! Email: elridge.proctor@tsa-usa.org
