Ask Your Congressman/woman To Join The Caucus
The Congressional Mitochondrial Disease Caucus launched in June of 2012.
Currently, Rep. Jim McGovern is our democratic caucus co-chair. Our republican
caucus co-chair is Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA). The Caucus serves as a forum
for members of Congress and their staffs to learn about mitochondrial disease
and related illnesses. To date, several very important briefings that have detailed
mitochondrial disease and its impact on children and adults.

vitamins and nutritional supplements, such as, CoEnzyme Q10, Vitamin E,
Vitamin C, Vitamin B1, Vitamin 14B2, Vitamin K1 and L-Carnitine.
