    Teaching Health Center Program Good for Doctors, Patients

    "Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers, with input from medical educators locally and throughout the nation, began drafting a bill to reauthorize the [Teaching Health Center] program in early 2017. Importantly, this new bill would double the funding level to more accurately support the actual cost of training a resident physician, [and] provide for more sustained funding..."

    Thank you for the article, Dr. Bob Maudlin! It has been my honor to work with you and your team to protect and expand this vital service that helps our community and trains the next generation of doctors!

    Women's Rally for Cathy in Spokane

    Last night I was humbled by the support of more than 100 women from Eastern Washington.

    As the only woman in Congress to give birth three times while in office, I'm often asked, "how do you do it?" The truth is, I'm just like any other working mom – some days are more difficult than others. But, with family and faith, we persevere. Through laughter and tears, I was inspired by the women who shared their stories of resilience and determination. As mothers, wives, sisters, and friends we should always strive to build each other up.

    Throwback to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

    Throwback to 2014, when I took the Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise awareness and money for ALS research.

    Last week, I was honored and privileged to see a bill I sponsored — the permanent extension of the Steve Gleason Enduring Voices Act — signed into law with bipartisan support. It will give Americans with speech disabilities, especially those with ALS, access to technology that will give them a voice again.

    I Want to Solve the Problem

    "I think of my daughters and wonder what kind of culture they're inheriting. This type of behavior is beneath us and not who we are. No longer should your taxpayer dollars go to cover up inappropriate behavior by members."

    Last year, in the wake of the #MeToo movement, I thought of my daughters and made a vow to make changes in Congress.

    I'm proud to say that yesterday the House passed landmark legislation to create new protections for House employees and stop elected officials from using taxpayer dollars to pay settlements.
