Legislative Alert! (Don't Let Iowans Do All the Work This
While Iowans are gathering to nominate their candidates for President of the United States, the rest of us can also exercise our rights as citizens to shape the country. We can urge our Representatives to Congress to pass H. Con. Res. 70, endorsing May as National Celiac Awareness Month.
The bill, introduced in the House of Representatives by Nita
Lowey (D-NY), declares that Congress: (1) supports the goals and ideals of
National Celiac Awareness Month; (2) should work with health care providers and celiac disease advocacy and education organizations to encourage screening and early detection of celiac disease; and (3) should increase federal funding for celiac disease research. The complete text of the bill is available on the Library of Congress website.
