We are pleased to announce FoNIA’s social media campaign #NIAFundsMe to highlight NIA’s role in investing in innovative and impactful aging research.  Attached and at the link below is a #NIAFundsMe tool kit to demonstrate how to participate in the campaign.  Feel free to use the “blurb” below in your outreach and communications to your membership, partners, and Boards to encourage researchers to share all the incredible work they do with NIA funding and allowing us to share their story and the role of NIA funding.  We can then amplify the messages to Congressional leadership and appropriators.

#NIAFundsMe Social Media Campaign

The Friends of the National Institute of Aging (FoNIA) has designed a social media campaign to highlight the research that NIA funds which enhances the lives and expands the health span of all Americans.  FoNIA is encouraging all aging researchers to take a picture of themselves and/or something emblematic of their research and post to social media using #NIAFundsMe hash tag.  FoNIA can then funnel these posts to appropriate Congressional social media feeds.
