LATEST SENATOR BALDWIN
Baldwin, Murray, Gillibrand Introduce Legislation to Increase Availability of Preventive, Life-Saving Cancer Screenings for Women
U.S. Senators Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), Patty Murray (D-WA) and Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) introduced the Invest in Women’s Health Act of 2017, legislation to provide women with more preventive and life-saving cancer screenings at safety net clinics like Planned Parenthood. This bill would help reduce health disparities by placing an emphasis on populations most at risk, including low-income women and women of color.
“At a time when women’s health is under attack, it’s critical that we step up and do more,” said Senator Baldwin. “I’m proud to support this legislation to increase women’s access to preventive care and life-saving cancer screenings. When we improve the availability of education, information, and preventive screenings, we can increase cancer survival among women and save lives.”
