An important part of Community's mission is improving everyone's health. So, when government considers changes in health policy, chances are Community will feel the impact. Sometimes Community will be leading or supporting the effort, and other times it will express concern.

You'd expect that from the region's largest private employer and its safety net.  My job as director of public affairs is to provide research and support for Community's leadership team and Board of Trustees on political and community affairs.

Nearly 47 million Americans are uninsured. The first year of cancer treatment costs Americans $2.3 billion in time lost to travel, and waiting for and receiving treatment.  We get hammered with so much bad news daily that it's fair to wonder why we should get out of bed.
