An important aspect of the work of the National Center for Health Research and our Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund is to provide objective information to policy analysts, policy makers, and opinion leaders. As we collect and analyze scientific data on the effectiveness of programs and services affecting the health and safety of adults and children, we determine the policy implications and share our findings in Issue Briefs, reports, meetings, and testimony before Congress, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and other agencies at the federal, state, and local level. You can find examples of our official statements, testimony, reports, and letters to legislators in this policy section of our web site.

If you have any questions, please contact Jack Mitchell at 202 223-4000 or jm@center4research.org.
