Advocacy

At MFHS, we encourage all the women, children and families in our community to make their health a priority every day, and we work with those most in need to help them care for their health. Now, more than ever, we urge you to not only make health a priority, but to reach out to your local legislators to express your concerns over possible funding cuts that will adversely impact women and children—particularly those who are uninsured and under-insured and will likely be unable to receive important preventive care and screenings. Adequate options for accessing reproductive health care and good nutrition lead to better health for patients, their families, and our entire community.

Please use the tools below find your state and federal elected officials and contact them to express your concern over potential funding shortfalls and possible program eliminations. You can make a real difference for our community’s health by doing so.
