I will be hosting my annual Women�s Issues Conference next Saturday, October 26 at 9:00 AM. This year's event will focus on the impact sequestration and unnecessary political brinksmanship are having on women in our area and across the country. Our keynote speaker will be Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro from Connecticut. As co-chair of the Democratic Policy Committee and Ranking Member on the influential Labor, Health, Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee, Rosa works day-in, day-out on programs impacted by sequestration and the government shutdown that assist women, families and children in need. Because of sequestration, the Department of Health and Human Services saw its budget slashed by over $15 billion this year. These mindless cuts in federal investment dollars have blocked access to Head Start programs for thousands of students, rolled back funds for supplemental nutrition assistance, furloughed federal workers, and undermined our investment in medical research. $1.7 billion in cuts to NIH alone are disrupting research across the country on chronic and infectious diseases, demoralizing some of our leading research teams and diminishing the benefits we could gain from this public investment. A host of diseases, like breast and cervical cancer, disproportionately affect women. Cuts to NIH might save a few dollars today, but they come at the expense of potentially life-saving cures. In addition to health screenings and information booths from a range of local non-profits who offer services to women, a series of breakout seminars on a range of topics impacting women will be held. These include: *Leading at Work and in the Community *Making "Cents" of it All: Wealth Building for the 21st Century Woman *Women in the Military: Challenges Facing our Female Soldiers *Women in the Developing World *Navigating the Affordable Care Act *Car Care 101 I hope you can join me next Saturday morning. Bagels, coffee, and juice will be served in the morning, followed by a pizza lunch. Please register online through my website at www.moran.house.gov. Sincerely, James P.

Dear Unity,

I will be hosting my annual Women�s Issues Conference next Saturday, October 26 at 9:00 AM.  This year's event will focus on the impact sequestration and unnecessary political brinksmanship are having on women in our area and across the country.

Our keynote speaker will be Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro from Connecticut. As co-chair of the Democratic Policy Committee and Ranking Member on the influential Labor, Health, Human Services, and Education Appropriations Subcommittee, Rosa works day-in, day-out on programs impacted by sequestration and the government shutdown that assist women, families and children in need.

Because of sequestration, the Department of Health and Human Services saw its budget slashed by over $15 billion this year. These mindless cuts in federal investment dollars have blocked access to Head Start programs for thousands of students, rolled back funds for supplemental nutrition assistance, furloughed federal workers, and undermined our investment in medical research. $1.7 billion in cuts to NIH alone are disrupting research across the country on chronic and infectious diseases, demoralizing some of our leading research teams and diminishing the benefits we could gain from this public investment. A host of diseases, like breast and cervical cancer, disproportionately affect women. Cuts to NIH might save a few dollars today, but they come at the expense of potentially life-saving cures.

In addition to health screenings and information booths from a range of local non-profits who offer services to women, a series of breakout seminars on a range of topics impacting women will be held. These include:

Leading at Work and in the Community

Making "Cents" of it All: Wealth Building for the 21st Century Woman

Women in the Military: Challenges Facing our Female Soldiers

Women in the Developing World

Navigating the Affordable Care Act

Car Care 101

I hope you can join me next Saturday morning.  Bagels, coffee, and juice will be served in the morning, followed by a pizza lunch.  Please register online through my website at www.moran.house.gov.

James P. Moran
