The School-Community Health Alliance of Michigan hosted an Advocacy Workshop for the Corner Health Center last week in Ypsilanti. Members of the Corner’s Youth Leadership Council participated in a session that covered topics including the Affordable Care Act, the efforts to repeal and replace the ACA, the federal/state budget processes, and strategies for working with legislators to advocate for adolescent health.
The workshop came at an ideal time for the Youth Leadership Council: they were recently chosen to lead a county-wide health project. SCHA-MI is excited to work with SBHCs on improved their advocacy! Please contact Kevin Lignell at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
