Congressional Dear Colleague Letters on FY 2017 CHGME Appropriations

158 House members and 36 Senators signed on to letters to the Appropriations subcommittees in support of CHGME funding for FY 2017. 

The letters called Children’s Hospitals GME one of the most important federal investments in strengthening children’s health care in America. Independent children’s hospitals have an indispensable role in strengthening the pediatric workforce and improving children’s health care, training 49 percent of all pediatric residents, including 45 percent of general pediatric residents and 51 percent of pediatric specialty fellows.
