“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on Earth.” – Muhammad Ali

Yesterday, we learned that volunteering contributes billions of dollars to the US economy, and is good for your health!

In light of that science, and in honor of the latest move to gut the Affordable Care Act, we’re making a health-related volunteer suggestion today. 

Every year, the NIH and universities seek thousands of healthy people to participate in medical research trials. Healthy people are used as an important basis for comparison with people suffering from chronic or life-threatening diseases, to better test new procedures and treatments. Go to this link and type in “healthy” and “normal” as search terms, to find where the need is!

Today’s Action: Sign up to be a healthy control for research studies. Help save lives! Then, just in case the new Obamacare threat is real … tell your representative to oppose any new attempt to gut the Affordable Care Act!
