Front and Center: Health Centers Testify on Health Reform

By John Sawyer

The first of TWO health center witnesses will testify in Congress today, at a hearing in the House Ways and Means Committee entitled “Health Reform in the 21st Century, Proposals to Reform the Health Care System”.

ryanDr. Daniel Baxter, Medical Director of the William F. Ryan Community Health Network in New York City, will speak to the role of safety-net providers like health centers in health reform, health centers as Medical Homes, and the future of the primary care workforce.

We’re excited to have such a distinguished health center leader making the case to Congress on behalf of America’s health centers!  Tune into the Committee’s website at 9 AM to watch the hearing in streaming video.
