Yesterday, we spent the day at the offices of the Interface Media Group to shoot a video on the vital importance of medical research to the national fabric of the United States.
The video, which will debut at the Rally for Medical Research in Washington, D.C. in September, highlights the prolific breakthroughs in public health and advances in treatment of diseases due to the research at the National Institutes of Health. It also sends a message to U.S. leaders that for this trend to continue both now and in the future the NIH needs much more support.
To help spread the word, we invited those in the D.C. area to come to the shoot and share what medical research means to them. After all, each person has been affected in different ways by advances in research. We all have specific diseases or conditions that are important to us and those closest to us. We wanted to make sure these messages were shared in this video.
The D.C. area came through. We want to thank the following organizations who participated in our video shoot: The Gerontological Association of America, the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, the National Aging in Place Council, the Parkinson’s Action Network, the Hydrocephalus Association, Dysautonomia International, and Washington, D.C. Healthcare Advocates. Everyone who participated will help make the message of our video even more powerful.
We look forward to sharing our video with everyone at the rally and online. Stay tuned for further updates!
