Burgess Introduces the EMPOWER for Health Act
Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Republican Leader of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, reintroduced H.R. 2781, the Educating Medical Professionals and Optimizing Workforce Efficiency and Readiness (EMPOWER) for Health Act of 2019.
“By supporting physician workforce programs, the EMPOWER for Health Act of 2019 will ensure that patients in North Texas and around the country have access to skilled physicians and medical professionals – regardless of where they live. This legislation reauthorizes key Title VII funding, which increases access to physicians and other providers in underserved areas, and promotes training opportunities for physicians to maintain and improve their skills. This bipartisan bill has broad support, and I urge the Energy and Commerce Committee to consider it soon.”
Dr. Burgess first introduced this legislation, formerly known as the EMPOWER Act, in the 115th Congress. The full text is available here.
