Fighting for Access - Reducing Health Disparities
As a result of the impending onslaught of legislation, AltaMed has formed the AltaMed Action Fund, a political organization dedicated to fight to keep and expand access to QUALITY healthcare for all. The mission of this fund is simple - support those who are fighting to expand access to care and reduce health disparities and oppose those who are putting up barriers in front of our clinics. There is a lot of work to be done and if WE do not stand up now for our patients and their ability to get to our clinics to receive the care they need, who will?
AltaMed led the nation in sign-ups for the Affordable Care Act for the third consecutive year and our Action Fund is taking strides to fight for healthcare for all, reduce health disparities in underserved communities, and make an impact on the elected officials who represent us and the legislation they fight for in Sacramento. Through the Action Fund, we are helping to qualify and pass the tobacco tax ballot initiative for the November ballot, lobbying for AB 2782 to tax sugary-sweetened beverages, and supporting politicians that will fight with us to improve healthcare for the underserved.
We need our friends with us as we continue these fights and others to improve our healthcare system.
Can we count on you?
