Rep. Welch champions pediatric research

Posted: Updated:

Vermont Congressman Peter Welch led a successful charge to increase funding for pediatric research.

President Obama signed the bill into law Thursday. It will funnel more than $12 million a year for a decade into research of pediatric diseases and disorders.

The legislation is named in memory of Gabriella Miller, a 10-year-old children's health research advocate who died of brain cancer in October.
