AAMC Introduces New Social Media Resource to Highlight Medical Research Discoveries
The AAMC (Association of American Medical Colleges) today announced a new social media resource to highlight federally funded medical research advances being made by scientists and physicians at the nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals. The new Tumblr feed also includes stories of patients who have benefited from advances in medical research.
Part of the AAMC’s Research Means Hope initiative, the new feed is intended to serve as a resource for legislators and staff, the media, patients, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about the medical research discoveries happening as a result of the nation’s sustained federal investment in medical research. Scientists and physicians at the nation’s medical schools and teaching hospitals conduct about half of all external research funded by the National Institutes of Health.
