A BILL
To enact section 5.2280 of the Revised Code to designate the calendar week including the seventeenth day of July as "Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week."

BE IT ENACTED BY THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO:
Section 1.  That section 5.2280 of the Revised Code be enacted to read as follows:
Sec. 5.2280.  The calendar week including the seventeenth day of July is designated as "Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week."
Section 2.  In enacting section 5.2280 of the Revised Code, it is the intent of the General Assembly to increase public awareness and understanding of congenital diaphragmatic hernias. The General Assembly considers it vitally important that the state designate the calendar week including the seventeenth of July as "Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Week." According to CHERUBS - The Association of Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Research, Awareness and Support, a congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) occurs when the diaphragm fails to form fully, which allows the abdominal organs to move into the chest cavity and prevents lung growth. CDH occurs in 1,600 babies every year in the United States. The state encourages and commends private efforts, including those of CHERUBS, to enhance funding for CDH research, provide educational materials and programs, and create a support network for families affected by this devastating birth defect.
