Rural Health Needs Political Leaders

On March 13th, 2017, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office projected that the repeal of the ACA would leave 24 million Americans uninsured.

As rural health experts and advocates, we need you to get politically involved. Your expertise and voice are needed at the national level in the debate over the future of the Affordable Care Act and rural healthcare in general.

The New England Rural Health Association is stepping up and working to marshal your voices in Washington. We have heard from those in power that the most effective advocate to a Congressional member are their constituents. The New England Rural Health Association will be creating briefing materials for you, as the constituent champion, to share with Congressional members.

We need a comprehensive list of rural health champions in each Congressional District. Our goal is to have a constituent champion assigned to each Congressional Representative. Will you help us meet our goal and make a commitment to serve as a champion for the year.

Please fill out the following form and then send it on to friends and colleagues.

We need to speak as one unified voice.
