This week, Congress acted to fight the threat of the Zika virus in the United States. Today, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) joined Speaker Ryan as he signed bipartisan legislation to accelerate the development of a treatment—and ultimately a cure—for the virus. Rep. Brooks introduced the House version of this legislation.
We need more women at all levels of government – but not just for parity’s sake. I believe Congress, and the country, work best when all voices are represented. I shared my thoughts on how we can encourage more women, especially young women, to consider serving in public office with The Hill.
Last week, Purdue University announced that it had made a breakthrough in determining the structure of Zika virus, a critical first step to developing a treatment or vaccine. I applaud their efforts, but the underlying problem isn’t this one disease. As a nation, we are underprepared to meet the challenges of a biological threat. I shared my views and some potential solutions with the Indianapolis Star.
