Ask Your Member of Congress to Co-Sponsor the ARPA-H Act

ARPA-H can open federal funding and action for Lyme and tick-borne disease

Hello Lyme Advocate,

We need your help. Please take a few minutes to ask your U.S. Representative to Co-Sponsor HR 5585, the ARPA-H Act.

Here's why it's important. ARPA-H (Advanced Research Projects Agency–Health) is a new agency which is designed to foster innovative research in health. We need innovation in Lyme and Tick-borne disease for new diagnostics and therapies, an eventually a cure. ARPA-H is thus far funded by the House with 3 billion dollars and the Senate with $2.4B, but needs to be authorized and structured for success -- and this bill does just that. It creates an independent reporting structure NOT in the NIH, but directly to the Secretary of Health and Human Services, which is how all the other successful ARPA agencies were formed (DARPA in Defense and ARPA-E in Energy).

An independent ARPA-H could be a key to unlocking diagnostics and therapies for Lyme and Tick-borne diseases!

Please enter your information below and send the email to your U.S. Representative.

Thank you very much!
Bonnie
