Although there was a temporary resolution passed, the issue of a government shutdown and a funding cliff for healthcare organizations is approaching fast (November 17th)! It is important to reach out via email or phone to our representatives to let them know we need this funding so NEW Health and health centers across the country can continue our vital services for the most vulnerable members of our communities.
