Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Applaud Congresswoman McCarthy's Resolution Raising Awareness of Preventable Facial Trauma During Sports Activities
Date:3/4/2009

ROSEMONT, Ill., March 4 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Facial trauma is a too frequent occurrence during sports activities ranging from cycling to volleyball. Earlier this week Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy (D-N.Y.) introduced H. Res. 193, a resolution in the U.S. House of Representatives to designate April as National Facial Protection Month. Congresswoman McCarthy, chairwoman of the House Education & Labor Subcommittee on Healthy Families and Communities, has been a vocal supporter of preventing unnecessary facial trauma during sports activities. As the spring sports season gets underway, Congresswoman McCarthy and the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS) hope to prevent head and face injuries by educating the public about the importance of effective oral and facial protective devices and equipment.
