House Budget Bill Proposes to Eliminate Brain Injury Programs at the CDC Injury Center

Dear Brain Injury Champions and Advocates,

On Wednesday, the House Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies proposed a budget bill for Fiscal Year 2025 that would eliminate all brain injury programs under the Centers for Disease Control’s Injury Center.

This would be an enormous step backwards. Without these brain injury programs, we’ll have even less accurate data and create a void in public education and outreach.

We need you to help us oppose this proposal and preserve brain injury programming!

ACTION ALERT:

We are asking ALL our advocates to email and call House Appropriations Labor and Health and Human Services Subcommittee members and ask them to save the Injury Center by 9:00 am on Wednesday, July 10.
