Advocacy Update: October 16, 2006

Election Day is less than a month away


The entire U.S. House of Representatives and a third of the Senate are up for re-election November 7. And we've made it easy for the hospital family to make their voices heard.

We've created with all the information you, your staff and your patients and community need about your state's voting rules and deadlines, including how to vote absentee or by mail.

The site also includes information about how to gauge candidates' positions on a critical issue that affects all Americans:  health care coverage. At the site you'll find a downloadable brochure with three direct questions to ask candidates about expanding coverage.

The site is open to anyone … feel free to forward this Advocacy Update to your entire team, and to publicize for your patients and community.

And be sure to share with us what your candidate said in response to your coverage questions. Send feedback to: Thanks!
