Most New Jersey residents see global health as critical to state's economy
Date:2/16/2011

WASHINGTONFebruary 16, 2011Despite the unpredictable economy, nearly three-quarters (73%) of New Jersey residents think spending money on research to improve health globally is important to jobs and incomes in the state, according to a new statewide poll commissioned by Research!America.

Former Congressman and Research!America Chair John Edward Porter said, "Global health research is one of New Jersey's best investments, in which the state's private sector plays a leading role.

This is a growth opportunity for New Jersey. I urge the state's leaders to further strengthen their commitment to global health R&D in New Jersey."

Porter added, "Working to treat and prevent disease around the world not only fuels our economy and creates jobs here, but also allows some of the world's best minds to come together here to enrich ou
