I received this action alert asking advocates like you and I to urge the Senate to pass the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME bill (S. 1557). The bill would extend funding through 2018 according to the alert released by the team at Speak Now For Kids. Below is the action alert:
Thank you for your recent help to successfully urge the Senate to pass the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) bill (S. 1557), extending the program’s funding through 2018. Your help was invaluable, and made a big difference. Now, it’s the House’s turn to act on this important legislation.
We are so close to this important benefit for pediatric health reaching President Obama’s desk for signature into law. This is the final step in what has been a two-year process for reauthorizing the CHGME program.
Please help us fight for access to pediatric specialty care by contacting your Member of Congress NOW.
Why is the CHGME program important? For more than a decade, the CHGME national program has helped children’s hospitals across the country train more than 6,000 pediatricians and pediatric specialists to care for kids with critical health needs.
