Advocacy and Public Policy
The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy (FPN) works to support public policies that benefit people with peripheral neuropathy. Advocacy and public policy work are important for advancing research into finding new treatments and, ultimately, a cure for peripheral neuropathy. FPN advocates for federal and state legislation as well as regulatory actions that will eventually benefit you. We are working to ensure you have access to high-quality, affordable, evidence-based care and treatments.
Our Policy Targets
The Foundation works with key stakeholders to help shape legislation and regulations that impact people with peripheral neuropathy. While priority issues vary from year to year, our main focus is advancing research on peripheral neuropathy. We support efforts to increase the federal investment in research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Department of Defense (DoD), in order to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and management of peripheral neuropathy.
