August 26, 2021

Welcome to the Illinois 7th Congressional District!

I am pleased to join with my colleague Representative Raja Khristamorti to announce that monies approved as a part of the American Rescue Plan to help deal with the issues of burnout among healthcare workers and to reduce and promote mental health and wellness. 

The Covid 19 pandemic has taken its toll on the health workforce, and we must do everything practical and professional to keep our frontlines in good shape, therefore we are please to note that this $103 million dollars is being released by HRSA and will greatly help keep our Health Workforce, healthy and working.  We must and we will arrest this virus.
