Monday, March 12, 2018

(Sacramento) - Assemblymember Rudy Salas (D-Bakersfield) is requesting funding for research and outreach of Valley Fever, a vastly under-reported disease. “Even with the record number of cases in our state, Valley Fever is still under-recognized: the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 150,000 cases go unreported every year in the United States,” Assemblymember Salas said. “Increased awareness among the public will help mitigate these issues.” Watch this Assembly Access video to learn more about Salas’ plan to fight Valley Fever.
