Twenty Senators and Counting…

Posted By Administration, Monday, May 7, 2012

20 Senators have now signed on, bringing the total signatories up to 20 – thus far. Please continue your outreach, there is still time to sign on today! Once again, here's the letter, and dear colleague. Please continue to ask Prevention Fund supporters in the Senate to contact Andi Fristedt to sign onto the dear colleague letter.

You can glean useful talking points for your calls from a recent White House blog. " Eliminating the Prevention and Public Health Fund would have a devastating effect on women's health and our work to prevent disease and illness. Eliminating the Prevention and Public Health Fund would mean: Hundreds of thousands of women could lose access to vital cancer screenings… Programs that help to prevent congenital heart defects, prevent fetal alcohol syndrome, and promote early identification efforts for children with developmental delays and disabilities could be eliminated… Tens of Thousands of children could lose access to immunizations… These are just a few of the important ways the Prevention and Public Health Fund will help keep millions of Americans healthy. Keeping college affordable for America's students should not come at the expense of putting women's health at risk.”

Our course, the bottom line is utilization of the Prevention Fund for critical public health programs . The Department of Health and Human Services has posted a series of recent funding announcements. Please click here to see what resources are available to fund programs addressing mental and behavioral health (including suicide prevention), tobacco control, immunizations, and prevention awareness.
