Today I received a nice email from Research!America, promoting their Ask Your Candidates campaign! Is Medical Research a Priority? Below is the reminder to get involved before the elections next month. The message includes two super easy ways to participate in the campaign.
I have asked my candidates… have you asked yours? Make medical research a priority!
Ask Your Candidates! Is Medical Progress a Priority?
With less than a month remaining before Election Day, now is the time to get involved in the Ask Your Candidates! initiative. Through this effort, voters can ask congressional candidates to share their views on accelerating medical progress in America. Every voice makes a difference as we look to find treatments and cures for deadly and disabling diseases like cancer and Alzheimer’s, and other threats like Ebola.
There are two easy ways to participate:
- Send an email to your candidates using the pre-drafted message, or a message of your own, and by filling in your contact information and clicking “Send Message.”
- Create awareness about the importance of medical research by taking a selfie. Just follow these steps: 1) Personalize an AYC! sign (or create your own sign), sharing why you support medical progress; and 2) Post your signs on Facebook or Twitter, using the hashtag #AYCresearch, or send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’d like to see examples of selfies, see the AYC! selfies Facebook album.
