On January 15th, organizations across Virginia gathered at the General Assembly in Richmond to visit their legislators for Healthcare Safety Net Legislative Day. Site coordinators from our clinics, Bassett Family Practice and Ridgeway Family Health, Amanda Doss and Samantha Staples were there to represent the Coalition.
They spent the morning talking to Virginia legislators about the importance of preserving our health care safety net clinics and ensuring that everyone in Virginia has access to the highest quality health care. They also discussed how the Coalition increases access to healthcare in the Martinsville-Henry County community, along with advocating for Medicaid adult dental coverage. Each legislator was invited to visit the clinic in the area they represent.
