MAKING LIFE WORK

The Gabriella Miller #KidsFirst Research Act prioritizes taxpayer funding for scientific research of pediatric diseases and disorders such as cancer, autism and Fragile X.

Searching For A Cure

It’s not enough to just conduct research for new treatments—we need to be pushing for research that will help uncover cures for pediatric cancer, autism spectrum disorder and many other diseases impacting children.

Focusing On Priorities

Eliminates taxpayer financing of presidential campaigns and party conventions and uses these funds to expand pediatric research at the National Institutes of Health through the NIH Common Fund.

The Kids First Research Act is named in memory of Gabriella Miller.
