INHOFE SUPPORTS NATIONAL CELIAC DISEASE AWARENESS DAY

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement after the U.S. Senate last night unanimously passed S. Res. 605, a resolution designating September 13, 2010 as “National Celiac Disease Awareness Day”:  

“As an ongoing supporter for this cause, I am pleased that the U.S. Senate passed this resolution again this year. I applaud the efforts of both Members of Congress and the many organizations who continue to raise much needed awareness for celiac disease that currently affects an estimated 3 million Americans and thousands of Oklahomans. Greater awareness of this disease is needed to properly diagnose and treat the many who suffer the debilitating affects caused by celiac disease.”
