Senators Show Support for FY' 18 CHGME Funding

On May 24, 34 Senators signed on to a bipartisan Dear Colleague letter urging the Senate Labor HHS Education Appropriations Subcommittee to provide strong, continued funding in FY 2018 for the Children’s Hospital Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) program. CHA thanks Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) for taking the lead on organizing the letter and also thanks the many children’s hospitals that urged their senators to sign on to the letter. A similar letter was submitted in March by over a 100 Houses members.
