Time=Lives is an effort to elevate awareness of the human toll of a slow, inefficient research system and build support for speeding medical research. Check out the Time=Lives campaign: http://timeequalslives.org/
Our goal is to accelerate the progress of discovering and developing new medical solutions for deadly and debilitating diseases.
To ensure we share these stories effectively and amplify their messages to leaders and decision makers whose work can chart the course of our future well-being, here are some of the things we look forward to doing throughout this campaign:
1. Delivering YOUR STORIES in a creative and compelling ways to Members of Congress;
2. Packaging YOUR STORIES sharing them effectively with Administration officials;
3. Preparing YOUR STORIES for all stakeholders in the medical research advocacy community to use as appropriate to advance their respective goals.
Despite the billions of dollars flowing through our healthcare system, it still takes about 15 years, on average, to move a scientific breakthrough from microscope to marketplace. For the more than 100 million Americans living with cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, heart disease, and others for which there are no cures and few meaningful treatment options, this is simply too long to wait. People are dying every day waiting for treatments and cures, and unless we fix the broad, systemic issues that are stalling progress, this won’t change. To save lives, we have to save time.
