CHA Asks Hospitals to Urge Representatives to Support Equitable Distribution of Livers for Transplantation

More cosigners needed

This post has been archived and contains information that may be out of date.

Earlier this month, CHA sent an Advocacy Alert to hospital leaders explaining a new policy that reduces the disparity in access to livers for transplantation in California and asking hospitals to urge their members of Congress to sign a bipartisan letter supporting the policy. The deadline for signatures has been extended to 2 p.m. (PT) on Feb. 28. 

To date, 79 representatives have signed on to the letter, including 38 from California (listed below). It is vital that congressional offices hear from their local hospitals on this issue. If you have not already done so, please contact your representative and ask them to support the letter.
