[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E498] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] HONORING THE SERVICE OF DR. DIANE DOOLEY ______ HON. MARK DeSAULNIER of california in the house of representatives Monday, April 29, 2019 Mr. DeSAULNIER. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize the service of a long-time community leader, Dr. Diane Dooley. Diane has been a leading pediatrician in Contra Costa County for forty years, making it her life's work to protect the lives and health of children. Throughout her career, Dr. Dooley has been an advocate of children's health issues such as childhood obesity, oral health, and mental health. In addition to her medical practice, Diane was also instrumental in the founding of Healthy and Active Before 5, a collaborative in Contra Costa County that works to prevent childhood obesity and promote healthy practices and environments. For the past twelve years, Diane served on Healthy and Active Before 5's Leadership Council, volunteering countless hours of her time. During her tenure, the collaborative provided funding and technical support to local organizations, and identified and mapped safe places for children to play in various cities across the county. She also developed a marketing campaign to raise awareness of the health risks of sugary drinks. After years of service, Dr. Diane Dooley is now retiring from Healthy and Active Before 5. Please join me in wishing Diane good luck in her retirement, and thanking her for a life of service and dedication to the youth of our community. ____________________
