TRIBUTE TO DR. GEORGE MULCAIRE-JONES 

Mr. DAINES, Mr. President, this week I have the honor of recognizing Dr. George Mulcaire-Jones of Silver Bow County for his tremendous impact on lives of folks in Butte and surrounding areas.  

Dr. Mulcaire-Jones has spent over 30 years practicing medicine, each of which he committed to improving the health of those around him. He founded Maternal Life International, which goes above and beyond, to provide training and program development in Africa and Haiti. Over the course of his career, Dr. Mulcaire-Jones has also focused on addressing the growing issue of substance abuse among pregnant and post-partum moms. 

Dr. Mulcaire-Jones led the fight to address the growing drug crisis in pregnant and post-partum moms across Montana. Dr. Mulcaire-Jones directed an initiative that defines symptoms for these moms, and ensures they receive the proper medical care. He was instrumental in a $150,000 grant awarded to a local hospital that works to treat these moms. Dr. Mulcaire-Jones also worked hard to ensure that other care providers in the industry have the training they need to properly treat those patients. 

I congratulate Dr. Mulcaire-Jones on his proactive approach in recognizing the signs of drug abuse in pregnant and post-partum mothers. Through his efforts, Dr. Mulcaire-Jones has paved the way for other communities around Montana to combat this growing epidemic.
