Children’s Health Fund is Proud to Support Congresswoman Nydia M. Velázquez’s Mobile Health Clinics Act of 2019

Washington, DC – “For over 30 years, Children’s Health Fund has leveraged mobile health clinics as an irreplaceable tool to combat the healthcare access crisis for vulnerable populations in this country,” said Dennis Walto, Chief Executive Officer at the Children’s Health Fund. “Mobile health clinics supplement the healthcare safety net by effectively targeting its gaps: medically underserved populations and areas. From urban to rural communities, they can literally deliver healthcare services and reach children and families where they live, work, and play, breaking access barriers like transportation and provider workforce shortages along the way. By expanding funding for mobile clinics, the proposed legislation will furnish communities and front-line health care providers with the tools they need to reach the last mile of care for children and families across the country. We thank Representative Nydia M. Velázquez for prioritizing the health and wellbeing of children with this proposed legislation, and our fellow co-sponsors for strengthening this effort.”
