Preserve the Prevention and Public Health Fund
Update: May 16, 2012
COPC would like to applaud Senators Cantwell and Murray for signing the recently circulated dear colleague letter in support of preserving our vital Prevention Fund. If you want to learn more about the Prevention Fund, its programs and why its so crucial to our nation’s health, we recommend you visit the Trust for America’s Health website at http://healthyamericans.org/health-issues/.

The House Energy and Commerce committee is hosting a mark-up tomorrow, Wednesday, April 25th that may mean the end of precious dollars that make up the largest source of dedicated funding for prevention and public health. The Prevention and Public Health Fund saves lives and reduces costs. The proposal at stake on Wednesday would not only eliminate the Fund entirely, it would also rescind the Fund’s unobligated dollars.
You can do something about it.
Help save our nation’s fragile public health infrastructure by contacting the leaders of the House Energy and Commerce committee. The Prevention Institute has provided a letter that you can use to quickly deliver the message: http://org2.democracyinaction.org/o/5902/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=10406.
