Congresswoman Clarke Resumes Activities

 “When St. Ann’s extended the invitation last winter, no one could have foreseen my recent surgery.  I’m delighted that the healing and recovery process has gone well enough for me to attend this historic event,” stated Rep. Clarke.  Previous keynote speakers have included Rep. Charles Rangel and Mr. Harry Belafonte. 

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths that disproportionately affect African American women.  Rep. Clarke is a co-sponsor of the Uterine Fibroid Research and Education Act of 2007, H.R. 2349, which was introduced during the 110th Congress.

“I have been deeply moved by the outpouring of prayers and well wishes,” offered Rep. Clarke.  “Although I am still under the watchful eyes of my doctors, I look forward to participating in a few of the remaining events held in central Brooklyn this summer.”
