CURE Epilepsy Joins CDC Coalition in Asking for $10 Billion for Centers for Disease Control Programs

CURE Epilepsy has joined 192 members of the CDC Coalition and other supporting state and national organizations urging U.S. lawmakers to provide at least $10 billion for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s programs in the FY 2022 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Appropriations bill.

CDC programs are crucial to reducing health care costs and protecting the health of the American people, yet have been woefully underfunded. The letter states that Congress should prioritize funding for all of the activities and programs supported by CDC, which includes research into a cure for epilepsy.
