WASHINGTON, DC – The Subcommittee on Health, chaired by Rep. Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), announced a “Member Day” on Wednesday, October 11, 2017, at 10:15 a.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building.
The Member Day is designed to allow representatives both on and off the committee to testify about the opioid epidemic, share local and personal stories, and highlight potential legislative solutions.
“It doesn’t matter where you live – the opioid crisis has a significant negative impact on every American community,” said Dr. Burgess. “I hope fellow House members will join us in elucidating the challenges our family members, friends, and neighbors are facing in the midst of this epidemic. Now more than ever, we must come together and strengthen our efforts to fight this heartbreaking malady.”
