If you follow PHC on social media, you have read a lot of posts around the “health center funding cliff” in the last few weeks. We are encouraging our staff, providers, friends and supporters in the community to GET VOCAL and support PHC.  We need each and every one of you to call, text, tweet, Facebook and email our Members of Congress to let them know that the funding cliff must be addressed…or, to use the hashtag currently being used by health centers across the nation #FixtheCliff. The cliff is exactly that, we “fall off” (lose 70% of our funding) on September 30. There is a real sense of urgency in addressing it in Washington DC. How can you help? There are a number of avenues to reach out. Use the hashtags #FixtheCliff #ValueCHCs in your posts as well.

1.) Email Members of Congress, use this this link to send an email (auto-populated with content)

2.) Share PHC posts on Facebook  (or write your own and tag our Members of Congress)
