ASTHO Applauds the Creation of the Public Health Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives

 Apr. 17, 2015

Congressmen Rob Wittman (R-VA) and Gene Green (D-TX) have announced the formation of a bipartisan Congressional Public Health Caucus in the U.S. House of Representatives. This caucus' creation is especially timely with the ongoing Ebola and measles outbreak response, a number of emerging infectious diseases, public health preparedness for violent spring and summer storms, and the constant surveillance of our food supply to stop deadly outbreaks before they occur.

Please help strengthen the caucus by contacting your representatives and asking them to join. To learn more, see the “Dear Colleague” letter from Congressmen Wittman and Green.
