Gwendolyn Mentioned in Congress as the National Pediatric Research Network Act Moves Forward
On September 11, 2012, the House Energy and Commerce Committee's Health Subcommittee passed H.R. 6163, the National Pediatric Research Network Act. Speaking on the bill's behalf, Rep. Lois Capps (D-CA) singled out spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) as one of the rare pediatric disorders for which this bill will help find a treatment. She also mentioned Gwendolyn's name and we couldn't be more proud.
