House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: April 12, 2017 03:02 PM
From: Representative Marcia M. Hahn
To: All House members
Subject: Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness Month
In the near future I will be introducing a resolution to designate April 2017 as “Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH) Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania. CDH is characterized by the abnormal development of the diaphragm before birth. Approximately 1 in 2,500 newborns are affected with 50% of the cases being fatal. Newborns with CDH often endure multiple surgeries and possible medical complications beyond the diagnosis.

Please join me in supporting the children with CDH and their families.

Introduced as HR266
