Urge Your Congressional Rep to Join the Primary Care Caucus
Reps. David Rouzer (R-NC) and Joe Courtney (D-CT) have officially launched the bipartisan Congressional Primary Care Caucus in order to raise congressional awareness of the issues facing primary care providers and patients. The timely launch of this caucus coincides with National Primary Care Week (October 5-9).
The Primary Care Caucus will educate Members of Congress and the general public about the value and importance of a comprehensive, coordinated and connected primary care system. Preventive medicine and comprehensive patient care is a tenet of the osteopathic philosophy and this caucus will be an
important audience for the AOA to partner with and advance legislation that reflects our profession’s core beliefs.
Encourage your Representative to support preventive health care and the osteopathic community by joining the Primary Care Caucus without delay. Send your representative a personalized message today.
