Afternoon Tea Time: Meet an Advocate
August 4 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
So we have all heard of the different awareness months. But have you ever heard of Healthcare Awareness Month? Most likely you haven’t because this August is the first time we are observing #HealthcareAwarenessMonth.
This month was created to highlight healthcare legislation, news stories, and health issues happening specifically in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, the largest full-time legislative chamber in the United States. The objective is to increase awareness and engagement on how these issues impact states like Pennsylvania, and the goal is to understand why and how we need to focus on increasing pressure on local legislators to pass healthcare policies to improve healthcare across America.
I will be joined by Peter Morley and Rachel Brody. They are advocates who fight for access and affordability of healthcare, primarily through policy solutions. Peter and Rachel developed a partnership with the Pennsylvania House Democratic Campaign Committee to create a campaign for Healthcare Awareness Month.
Be sure to grab your afternoon pick me up and sit down with us while we learn what this campaign means and how you can help!
