Groups Set Symposium on Stem Cell Research for Oct. 19 in Austin

by Dan Quinn

The Texas Freedom Network supports stem cell research, which offers hope to millions of people struggling with serious medical conditions like cancer, Parkinson’s Disease, diabetes and spinal cord injuries. But each legislative session religious-right groups try to ban one of the most promising form of this research — embryonic stem cell research — in Texas.

You can learn more about stem cell research and its benefits both to patients and to Texas at the 3rd Annual Stem Cell Research Symposium on October 19 in Austin. The event, sponsored by Texans for Stem Cell Research and Texas Cures Education Foundation, will be at the Texas Capitol.
