FNIDCR Sign on Letter Demonstrates Robust Support for NIDCR Funding

Last week, the Friends of the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (FNIDCR) sent a letter signed by 46 organizations, patient advocates and dental schools urging Congress to provide $430.5 million for NIDCR in the final fiscal year 2017 appropriation bill. The organizations noted that putting appropriations on autopilot via a long term continuing resolution beyond December 9th will slow down progress to finding cures for many diseases that plague our nation.  This letter was also distributed by the AADR Government Affairs Committee and FNIDCR transition team during their in person meetings with members of Congress on September 26th.
