Ander Crenshaw Honored for Standing Against Malaria
U.S. Rep. Ander Crenshaw, R-Fla., was honored on Tuesday for his work against malaria. Malaria No More awarded Crenshaw and U.S. Rep. Gregory Meeks, D-N.Y., with the Malaria Action Award and U.S. Sen. Dan Coats, R-Ind., with the Malaria Action Award.
"Malaria impacts millions of people around the globe -- mothers, fathers, and young children as well as American servicemen and women who are fighting overseas to keep us safe and building strong allies and trading partners in emerging economies," said Crenshaw. "I am honored to receive the Malaria Vision Award from Malaria No More and am proud to serve alongside Congressman Meeks as co-chair of the Congressional Caucus on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases. The fight to eliminate malaria as a public health threat requires teamwork and dedication. My commitment to that mission remains strong, and I look forward to continuing our critical work alongside the president's Malaria Initiative, the Department of Defense, and the Global Fund."
