We wrap up Arab American Heritage Month with Representative Rashida Tlaib.

Tlaib was born on July 24, 1976 to working-class Palestinian parents in Detroit, where she now holds a Democratic U.S. Representative seat for Michigan's 13th congressional district. She's held this seat since being elected in 2018. Tlaib became the first Palestinian-American woman to be elected to Congress.

This week, our spotlight for Arab American Heritage Month is Michael DeBakey, a nationally renowned surgeon.

DeBakey was born in Lake Charles, Louisiana. He was a cardiovascular surgeon who studied at Tulane University. He was born to Lebanese immigrants who encouraged him to pursue a medical degree. DeBakey soon stood out as a surgeon and eventually amassed more than 100 honors to his name, including the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the National Medal of Science, and the Congressional Gold Medal. In Houston, several institutions bear his name including the Houston Methodist DeBakey Heart & Vascular Center in Houston's Medical Center. Michael DeBakey died in 2008.

Earth Day is recognized every year on April 22 to raise awareness about issues affecting our planet. Environmental consciousness and appreciation for our planet are crucial to maintaining a healthy habitat for everyone. Eliminating pollution and protecting lands and species in danger are important to maintaining a healthy relationship with the ecosystem. You can do your part by reducing the amount of single-use plastic you consume, reusing items instead of throwing them out, and recycling items like plastic, paper, glass and electronics.

How will you celebrate Earth Day?
