Interstitial Cystitis Association National Call-In Day
Action Alert – Take action on April 28
Advocates from across the country are coming to Capitol Hill on April 28th to ask their Members of Congress to support the Interstitial Cystitis (IC) Education and Awareness Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This program has enabled ICA to educate medical providers about IC to improve patient diagnosis and care, as well as provide a warehouse of resources for patients, their families, and their physicians. This program has supported these ICA activities for nearly a decade but CDC is reallocating the funds to a different program.
Lend your voice to reinstate the CDC’s IC education and awareness program by calling your two Senators and one House Representative, and posting on social media. Ask your legislators to tell CDC to resume support of the IC education and awareness program.
