New Online Site Can Help FUS Community Speak Out Regarding Sequestration


Update from Jessica L. Foley, PhD, Scientific Director, Focused Ultrasound Foundation

FasterCures has launched Sequestration Station, an online destination for relevant and up-to-date news, resources, facts, and FAQs about how sequestration – or automatic government spending reductions – could impact medical research. These automatic spending cuts will take effect in January 2013 unless Congress acts soon.

To follow-up on the “call to action” the focused ultrasound community received from both Dean Kamen and Sen. Mark Warner at the symposium, I encourage everyone in the FUS community who is concerned about the potential long-term impacts of these cuts to take time to access this new site and make their voices heard by contacting members of Congress and other influential stakeholders.
