As part of the Prevention Fund Lobby Day, DHPE's Executive
Director Susan Goekler visited 6 Senate offices. Others in the group made
about 40 visits that day. The message -- preserve the Prevention Fund in
the Affordable Care Act. We shared examples of how the fund is being
used, to emphasize that it is NOT a "slush fund."
In January, DHPE's Board adopted advocacy priorities for the year and
this is one of them. If members have success stories about what has been
funded with the Prevention Fund, the Preventive Services Block Grant, or the
coordinated cooperative agreement, let Susan (firstname.lastname@example.org)
or Donna Nichols (email@example.com)
know so we can share (either with attribution or anonymously) when we are
advocating on your behalf.
