On Tuesday February 6, hundreds of Health Center Advocates will be in DC meeting with Congress and demanding a fix to the Health Center Funding Cliff. CompuGroup Medical (CGM) supports these efforts and would like to invite all of our partners to participate in this movement by wearing red in support of all health centers.
Backstory - Over four months ago, Congress failed to extend funding for Health Centers and fix a 70% funding cliff. This failure to act has put millions of patients, more than 50,000 jobs, and nearly 3,000 health center sites at risk. (Full details in link below.)
Wear red! Don't have a red shirt? Wear a red scarf, pin, hat, or other accessory . Ask your friends, partners, colleagues and others to wear red too. Support all health centers on Tuesday and let Congress know how their decisions have negatively impacted our industry and risk the backbone of the American health care system.
Post to social media. In the link below you can find pre-made social temples for Facebook, Twitter and more to show your support and don't forget to tag your Member of Congress. (Full details in link below.)
