A Bill Of Interest
I wanted to bring your awareness to a First Candle event in Washington, DC. I have known about it for a few weeks but have been waiting for the bill information before I brought awareness to this. The bill presently only includes SIUD and sudden older child death (up to 4 years). This is my concern and I have verbalized this to First Candle. They assure me a sister bill will be written that will address stillbirth. You can check out the symposium information at www.firstcandle.org/2009-symposium. I am attaching the bill so you can peruse it and share it with your members. I will inform you of any updates of this bill and sister bills I receive. First Candle is hoping bereaved parents will attend this event.
