As Thanksgiving approaches, it's natural to think about what we are thankful for in our lives. I'm thankful for you -- Missouri Cures supporters who help promote and protect medical research in the state. You share medical research stories from our email newsletters, Twitter and Facebook. You attend our events around the state. You are our ambassadors who help us move medical research, cures and therapies forward.
I had the pleasure of honoring two of our long-time supporters on October 26th. Dr. Ben Borowsky and Bob Klein have been volunteers since our formation in 2005. Ben has played a key role in helping educate people on the importance of research. Bob has been an advocate traveling to Jefferson City and talking with people about policy and how it can affect medical research taking place in the state. Both of these supporters, like so many of you, have personal stories and family members who can benefit from medical research. Thanks to all of you for your continued support and helping us promote and protect research in Missouri.
