Congresswoman Tours Innovative Medical Complex
June 14, 2000
Washington, DC - Congresswoman Cynthia A. McKinney (D-Ga) took
a tour today of an innovative medical equipment factory during a
visit to her district in Georgia.
MMG Healthcare manufactures several medical supplies used by hospitals
and doctors all across the United States. One of their most innovative
products is a catheterization system used for the excavation of
bladders and theirs is the only one on the market found to actually
prevent urinary tract infections.
While struggling to speak to a captivated crowd of over one hundred
employees, McKinney said, "I lost my voice last night while continuing
my fight for appropriations for you." "I have been and always will
be committed to our high-tech jobs".
The crowd was made up of many residents of her District and they
all applauded her for the struggle with her voice and her struggle
on behalf of their concerns. The Congresswoman answered questions
from the audience and addressed the concerns of several constituents
by immediately assigning their problems to her staff.
Sam Khawam, a representative from MMG, said, "We are all very grateful
to the Congresswoman for visiting us today and allowing us to let
her know how much we appreciate her and the good work she does for
us in Congress". "We are especially thankful for her helping us
to keep our jobs".
