Valley Fever

Valley Fever is a terrible disease that affects many in our community and is continuing to spread throughout the western parts of the country. As the co-chair of the Congressional Valley Fever Task Force, I am committed to increasing awareness, improving treatments, and eventually finding a cure for Valley Fever.  After organizing a Valley Fever Symposium with Federal and local partners, we have made some progress through collaborations of research and clinical trials through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health, which have helped further fungal disease research through the establishment of Valley Fever Research Centers.  With the continued leadership of our local Valley Fever advocates, we have continued to meet and learn more from research and awareness activities, which has led to over $20 million in Federal support to address this disease.
