Regular COVID-19 Updates and Breaking News
Americans for Medical Progress has launched a blog to provide regular updates on the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on research facilities and the country’s health care system.
AMP’s Frequently Asked Questions Webpages
Americans for Medical Progress has created two frequently asked questions webpages about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the research community. We also seek to provide helpful communications advice to biomedical organizations.
This public webpage contains information for general audiences. It explains how the research community is responding to the outbreak. It also addresses the impacts on research projects, scientists, animal care staff and research animals. Health research institutions are invited to link to this page from their own websites to help inform the public. The webpage will be expanded regularly as new questions and information arises.
Americans for Medical Progress has also launched this separate webpage to address questions being faced by the research community. This page is password protected. Contact Jim Newman at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about obtaining access.
