Fighting the Funding Cliff: One Veteran’s Story
We’ve been writing about the Community Health Center funding cliff. The phrase alone would lead one to think that this is an issue about money, but it’s more about people and how the decisions made (or left unmade) by Congress can have a ripple effect. That brings us to Kymberly Grafton, one of 300,000 veterans that rely on Community Health Centers for care. Grafton, a veteran of the United States Naval Reserve has been a patient at Unity Health Care since 2014. We recently met her on Capitol Hill, where she appeared at a news conference urging action on the Community Health Center funding cliff.
