House Appropriations L-HHS Subcommittee Holds Hearing on “Addressing the Maternal Health Crisis” 

The House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services (L-HHS) held a hearing on “Addressing the Maternal Health Crisis.” During the hearing, Members largely focused their remarks on how the current maternal health crisis is an issue of health equity. Notably, Chairwoman Delauro noted that the crisis is also a distinctly rural issue with hospital closures and declining access to maternal health services in rural areas is negatively impacting rural maternal health outcomes. You can find a Twitter thread created by the NRHA government affairs team on the hearing here.
