Forty-seven million Americans, including 9 million kids, are living without health insurance – forced to gamble every day that they won’t get sick or injured. That’s a risk no one should have to take.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) is a proud National Partner of Cover the Uninsured Week, an annual effort to highlight the need to cover America’s uninsured. This year’s effort will take place from April 27 – May 3. Please join thousands of individuals and organizations across the country and show your support. There are many different ways you can get involved:
- Highlight the issue in your community by planning an event such as a community forum, health fair, campus seminar or interfaith gathering.
- Distribute information about available low-cost and free health coverage programs to uninsured individuals and families.
- Stay informed and help spread the word Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper or share your views with family, friends and neighbors. To stay up to date on the issue, sign up for the Cover the Uninsured weekly news digest.
