Seniors are Living Proof of the impact medical research has made in our lives.
Living Proof is a national public awareness campaign designed to build understanding of and support for medical research nationwide. The project is directed by States United for Biomedical Research - a national coalition representing over 500 research institutions, medical schools, hospitals, voluntary health associations and businesses.
Living Proof will gather stories from senior citizens - patients, health care advocates, scientists, physicians and others - nationwide and use these stories to help inform others about the importance of medical research in our lives. The national educational campaign will create a series of articles based upon these stories, incorporating exciting news about ongoing and historic medical research. In addition to these media publications, the project will create an ongoing electronic and print archive of this important historical record.
Many national figures are helping the Living Proof project to succeed. These prominent individuals are telling their own stories, and helping us reach out to others nationwide through the media.
There is no cost to participate and no one will ever contact you to donate, purchase or otherwise engage in any financial transaction as a result of your participation. States United for Biomedical Research and the Living Proof project are not-for-profit educational organizations.
