Sharing Solve ME's populated template/link to support the Cures 2.0 Act that goes directly to your representative.

Per Solve, "the key provisions from the COVID-19 Long Haulers Act (H.R. 2754) were added to Cures 2.0 bipartisan legislation introduced before Congress by Reps. Diana DeGette (D-CO) and Fred Upton (R-MI). This bill will help accelerate medical product development and bring new innovations and advances to patients who need them faster and more efficiently.

"Cures 2.0 will:
  1. Address the long covid crisis through A) research into pediatric populations, B) research into disparities, and C) education and awareness programs.
  2. Create new research funding for non-public research separate from NIH
  3. Tackle big challenges requiring large, sustained coordination and high-risk exploration
  4. Develop and implement a national strategy to improve pandemic response for "medically underserved populations"
Cures 2.0 is urgently needed to respond quickly and improve the health outcomes for those with the world’s most difficult diseases – such as long covid and other post-acute infection syndromes."
