Washington, D.C. — Congressman Michael C. Burgess, M.D. (R-TX), Republican Leader of the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, released the following statement on President Trump’s actions to improve the future of kidney care for American patients.
“It was a privilege to join President Trump today as he announced his new initiative to improve the lives of Americans suffering from kidney disease. With nearly 100,000 Americans waiting to receive a kidney transplant, these patients have too few options for care and even fewer options for cures. By bolstering preventative care, increasing patients’ options, easing financial burdens, and investing in new research, President Trump can simultaneously improve Americans’ kidney health and lower their health care costs. I am grateful that President Trump continues to pursue innovative health care solutions that are making a difference in Americans’ lives. It is an honor to work alongside the President to deliver results for the American people.”
