Around the IPPF
Last month we asked people to support us, along with other patient organizations, in signing an online petition expressing concern over the US HHS' December 16 Essential Health Benefits bulletin. Collectively we were able to get over 2,700 signatures that were sent to Secretary Sebelius.
The summer intern program at the NIAMS provides an opportunity for students to spend a summer working side-by-side with some of the leading scientists in the world in an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research. Outstanding opportunities exist for high school, undergraduate, graduate and medical students contemplating a career in biomedical research or academic medicine. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2012. Click HERE for more information.
