Coming Events

PHACT Campaign - Public Health Action Campaign

This campaign is is an opportunity for Utah’s Public Health Constituents to communicate directly with our members of Congress while they are at home in our Congressional districts and state to show support for public health. 

Congress is considering spending significant cuts to public health funding, rescinds the Prevention and Public Health Fund, blocks funding for implementing much of the Affordable Care Act and includes a number of troubling anti-public health legislative actions which will harm the health of all Americans and increase the cost of health care.

More details on this campaign are COMING SOON!
