ASTHO members visit Capitol HillARLINGTON, VA (Mar. 13, 2019)—Over 80 state, local, and territorial health officials from across the country met with members of congress on Capitol Hill together. The aim of their visits was to share the critical need to sustain investments in public health agencies that protect and promote the health of all Americans and prevent sequester cuts in the FY20 budget…“Every person and every community should have the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. As part of ASTHO’s President’s Challenge, additional federal resources will help equip health officials to mobilize community-led, place-based collectives to improve the way we live, work, and play,” says Nicole Alexander-Scott, MD, MPH, ASTHO president and director of the Rhode Island Department of Health.
