With over 1,400 life sciences companies that employ more than 26,000 people, Virginia's life sciences
and biotechnology industries are critical to our local economy. Lawmakers are looking to find ways to
address high costs, but no solution considered should come at the expense of limiting treatment access
for patients or limiting future medical innovations.
Help us protect Virginia life sciences jobs and patients across the Commonwealth. Raise your voice!
Join us today and send a letter to Virginia lawmakers encouraging them to protect Virginia's
biotechnology ecosystem by rejecting policies that curb development of lifesaving therapies and Virginia
Dear [LAWMAKER NAME],
As your constituent, I urge you to support and advance policies that will protect Virginia's life sciences
and biotechnology industries.
The Commonwealth's life sciences industry has more than 1,400 companies, employs over 26,000 Virginians, and generates $8 billion annually towards our state's economy.
As you consider new legislation this upcoming session, I urge to you support policies that will advance Virginia's robust life sciences industry. Any proposal around health costs must not come at the expense of Virginia's ability to develop, test, and provide lifesaving treatments and cures to patients across the state and country.
Virginia life sciences companies need a strong innovation ecosystem to protect their ability to deliver new medications to patients.
