Co-Chair of Rural Health Care Task Force Named

U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, D-Alabama, has been selected co-chair of the House Ways & Means Committee’s Rural and Underserved Communities Health Task Force, a task force aimed at finding solutions to the challenges facing health care in rural and underserved communities.

The bipartisan task force will bring members and experts together to discuss the challenges of delivering health care in rural and underserved areas and explore policy options that could improve outcomes and care in those communities.

Case Studies

I’m pleased because I don’t have to make a 4 ½-hour drive to get my infusion. It’s great that we can now have the therapy that I needed right here.

I’m very fortunate and so grateful for everything the center does for me. The wait is short and I’m in and out in no time. Without this local service, I couldn’t keep my job. I wouldn’t be able to take care of my family or enjoy my life.

They monitored me, they took care of me. The infection that was causing the pain began to go away. I can tell you now I’m able to stand on both legs. After the infusion therapy, I was able to resume the activity that I truly enjoy, playing the guitar and exploring the wonders of music.
