Health Care Council
The Chamber's Health Care Council is a leader in providing the business perspective on key health care issues. The Council supports reform efforts that promote shared responsibility for health care financing, expand access to coverage and quality care and create health professional workforce opportunities.
In 2018, the Chamber will continue to advocate for health care policies that ensure reasonable health care reform implementation, strengthen our Country's health care safety net and promote healthier lifestyles.
