OACHC Day at the Statehouse
2017 is the year of the health center advocate – join your colleagues from across state for Ohio Community Health Center Day at the Statehouse. This year we will need ALL of your collective voices sharing the impact of how policy decisions like Ohio’s Medicaid expansion, 340B, workforce and more affect the patients and communities you so well serve. We sing your praises, but this year it will take the full choir to be heard – take this opportunity to orchestrate a full-scale advocacy day with your state legislators.
