The future of the National Health Service Corps (NHSC), health centers, and other vital programs for medically underserved communities is at risk. We need your voice to help us protect and expand these crucial programs, especially the NHSC, which has NO guaranteed funding beyond Fiscal Year 2023. Become an advocate with the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved today and ask your friends and colleagues to join as well.
Introducing Jordan Marshall, Your ACU Advocacy Contact
Jordan Marshall, ACU’s Deputy Director of Policy and Advocacy, will be communicating with you as we spearhead grassroots advocacy to secure long-term funding for the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). This year, Jordan will prioritize securing mandatory and discretionary funding for the NHSC.
In the coming weeks, ACU will release an NHSC white paper that explores how the Corps directly supports clinicians in addressing the growing demand for healthcare services in underserved communities and how Congressional support can improve the program. Stay tuned for more, learn about Jordan below, and please contact him with any questions.
