Today, the House Energy & Commerce Committee, Subcommittee on Health held a markup of 19 pieces of legislation, several of which seek to provide guidance and funding, and to catalyze activities to address social determinants of health and maternal health.

The Subcommittee voted favorably to advance the bipartisan Social Determinants Accelerator Act (H.R. 2503), which will help states and communities devise strategies to better leverage existing programs and authorities to improve health and wellbeing. The bill now moves to the full Committee for consideration.

Aligning for Health is thrilled to see forward momentum on this important bipartisan piece of legislation, and we look forward to working with the Committee on its continued advancement.
