FY 2017 CHGME Funding Letter by Children's Hospital CEOs to White House

On Dec. 16, chief executive officers of 73 children’s hospitals sent a letter to the White House to express support for the CHGME program and to urge for FY 2017 funding to be at the level of $300 million.

This request is based on the continued growth of the children’s demographic in the United States and continuing needs in the pediatric workforce, in particular with respect to sub-specialty shortages.
