College planning help available Sept. 12 (from Sept. 6 News Email)
As a mother preparing my children for college, I know firsthand how important financial aid is to help students go to school. Students and parents interested in learning about financial aid opportunities should attend a meeting with INvestEd at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 12 at New Tech High School. INvestEd will present information on the types of financial aid available including aid from federal and state governments, as well as institutions.  You can also learn about key sections of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form, which is the starting point to financial assistance for all students.
For over 35 years, the goal of INvestEd has been to provide students with solutions to put higher education within reach. Providing affordable choices to Hoosier students before college is the best way to limit excessive debt after college.

Reps. Bucshon and Carson Introduce Legislation to Advance Efforts to Address Preventable Maternal Mortality ( from Sept 5, 2019 Press Release)
 U.S. Representatives Larry Bucshon, M.D. (IN-08) and André Carson (IN -07) introduced the Excellence in Maternal Health Act (H.R. 4215) to authorize the Department of Health and Human Services to establish grant programs to develop and disseminate best practices to improve maternal health care quality, training, and education in order to reduce preventable maternal mortality.
As a physician and a father of four, I understand the importance of ensuring the health of mothers during pregnancy and after the delivery of newborns,” said Dr. Bucshon. “This is a critical time for both the mother and the child as a new life is brought into the world. We must do better in our approach across the entire nation, especially in rural America, to use best practices and provide necessary resources to stop preventable maternal mortality which is why I have introduced the Excellence in Maternal Health Act. I believe this bipartisan legislation will benefit patients and communities that are currently struggling.”
