Congressional Valley Fever Task Force launches website
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
The co-chairs of the task force are Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Rep. David Schweikert, who is from Arizona.
They released a statement on the new website and their task force's work:
“Public awareness is key to eradicating Valley Fever. Since being established in 2013, the Congressional Valley Fever Task Force has worked to provide information to the public, stakeholders in the medical and scientific fields, and community organizations to raise awareness, increase and coordinate Federal research efforts, and advance treatments and cures for this disease. Our new website is a critical resource in raising awareness and highlighting the work of the bipartisan Task Force. As the 115th Congress continues, we continue to work with Task Force Members to improve treatments and early diagnostics and aid in the development of a preventative vaccine for coccidioidomycosis.”
