Monday, April 30, 2012
Washington, DC- Congressman Steve King released the following statement after recently receiving two awards: the "Guardian of
Senior's Rights" award from the 60 Plus association and the "Champion of Healthcare Innovation" award from the Healthcare Leadership Council. 60 Plus Chairman, Jim Martin, came to King's office Friday to present him with his award. Earlier in the week, King received the Healthcare Leadership Council's award at its annual Healthcare Innovations Expo on Capitol Hill.
"Both of these awards highlight two subjects that are extremely important to me, and I am honored to have received them," said King. "As someone who represents a large number of seniors I take the responsibility of protecting seniors seriously. Jim Martin and the 60 Plus Association work tirelessly on behalf of our nation's seniors. I appreciate their recognition, and I look forward to continuing to work with them on the important issues facing our seniors in the future."
"I am also proud of the "Champion of Healthcare" award I've been given by the Healthcare Leadership Council. We must have a consumer driven healthcare system in the United States that puts patients in the driver's seat. I'm grateful for the opportunity to receive the recognition of the Council for my work in this area. Their support and expertise is critical in advancing the kind of reforms we need in healthcare."
