December 2002 AAOS Report
AAOS needs medical research success stories
AAOS is seeking medical research success stories. The Washington office needs personalized, absorbing stories to support congressional lobbying efforts for research funding. These stories will help members of the House and Senate Appropriations Subcommittees on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education see tangible ways that past increases in medical research funding have increased the quality and advances in health care. Without these compelling references, it will likely be difficult to convince Congress to support increases in the National Institute of Health budget.
