Last week Congress and President Obama delivered a Christmas miracle called “21st Century Cures” that will help improve the health of virtually every Tennessean.
This $6.3 billion bipartisan law will help us find cures for cancer, fight opioid addiction, treat mental illness, and better understand the brain to prevent diseases like Alzheimer’s.
— Bill Frist, M.D. (@bfrist) December 13, 2016
Former Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee has worked for two years with the Bipartisan Policy Center to help advance the legislation.
21st Century Cures will modernize the Food and Drug Administration. While biomedical research is making today one of the most exciting times ever in the field of medicine, our federal review and approval process takes too long and costs too much.
