    FOSTER of illinois in the house of representatives Thursday, December 11, 2014 Mr. FOSTER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today in honor Companeros en Salud/ Partners in Health, a not-for-profit grass roots organization in Aurora, Illinois that is celebrating its 15th Anniversary.

    Since 1999, Companeros en Salud/Partners in Health, NFP has provided assistance for members of the Hispanic community and other diverse groups to ensure equal access to health care and other social services in the Fox Valley. I would especially like to recognize Dr. Lulu Blacksmith, Companeros en Salud's founder, for her dedication and leadership of the organization.

    Through programs such as the Latina Health Festival, the Men's Health Festival, and Language Access Healthcare, Companeros en Salud has become an important resource for our community. Since its founding, the organization has been expanding its focus into areas such as mental health and diabetes, while still offering high quality service to those who need assistance the most.

    I would like to offer my sincere congratulations to Companeros en Salud/Partners in Health, NFP as it celebrates its 15th Anniversary.
