In just two weeks, nearly 200 PHA community members from 30 states answered our call to action to help push for a PH program at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Your emails asking Congress to sign a letter supporting funding for the CDC program worked!

This week 32 representatives from both sides of the aisle are on board. Twenty-eight signed the letter. Four more who have an active role in appropriating funding told us they will support our request.

To all who contacted your Member of Congress…PHA thanks you!

Our next step is to build similar support in the U.S. Senate. Keep an eye on PHANews for more details on how to make your voice heard again.
