Re: NHLBI Expands Recovery Act Communications
I am delighted to announce the debut of several new and enhanced communication tools from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to keep you informed about our activities – and those of the scientists we support – related to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act).
The investment of Recovery Act monies in the NHLBI allows us the opportunity to both accelerate the implementation of the NHLBI Strategic Plan: Shaping the Future for Research and to help stimulate the nation's economy. Through our enhanced Recovery Act Web pages, Twitter, and other activities, we will provide you with updates on the NHLBI's investment in basic and clinical research through Recovery Act funds.
The NHLBI Recovery Act Web pages feature general Recovery Act information, details on funding and policies, stories and videos about the researchers we support, and media resources. You can also find our new online Leadership Journal, where the NHLBI senior staff and I will share our personal perspectives on the strategic directions and impact of Recovery Act-supported research. Visit these pages at www.nhlbi.nih.gov/recovery/index.htm.
As a subscriber to the NHLBI Research and Policy listserv, you will soon receive our inaugural issue of The NHLBI’s Recovery Act News, an e-newsletter devoted exclusively to Recovery Act updates and announcements. The newsletter will also highlight stories about how Recovery Act funds are making real world differences and links to other tools that the NHLBI has designed to enhance Recovery Act communications.
Watch your inbox for the first edition of The NHLBI’s Recovery Act News, which will arrive in the next few days. ... And, follow me on Twitter (@NHLBI_Nabel) for general and Recovery Act-related updates on a regular basis!
