The BEST Practices Act – A Bill to Modernize Military Medical Training by Phasing Out Animal Use

You can help gather support for the BEST Practices Act. There are three simple steps:

First, send an e-mail to your House member.

Second, send an e-mail to your Senators.

Third, call your House member and your Senators using the Capitol switchboard (202-224-3121). You can simply tell the operator where you live and ask to be connected to your representative’s office. When you call, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • I am calling as a constituent to ask that you co-sponsor the BEST Practices Act [for your House member: H.R. 1243 / for your Senators: S. 498].
  • The BEST Practices Act would modernize military medical training by replacing the use of animals with human-relevant simulators.
