What's at stake:
* Establish a National Lymphatic Commission: Our relentless advocacy has led to the House of Representatives Health Appropriations Committee recommending that a National Lymphatic Commission be established. This is a monumental accomplishment and our best opportunity to see a dramatic expansion of lymphatic research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
* Include "Lymphatic Research" in the FY 2021 Department of Defense (DOD) Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP) Budget: The DOD spends over $300 million per year on medical research. We are fighting for lymphatic diseases to be included as a category eligible for study in this program. We are making the case that lymphatic diseases disproportionately affect active duty service members due to physical trauma, bacterial infections, burn pit exposure, and complications from cancer treatment.
