Today, FAH and other health groups sent a letter to the Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies Senate Committee on Appropriations leadership urging they support the Children’s Hospitals Graduate Medical Education (CHGME) program. “CHGME is a vital investment in strengthening the pediatric workforce and access to care for children. As groups dedicated to protecting and advancing the health of America’s children, we thank you for your longstanding bipartisan support of CHGME and ask you to provide $718.8 million in FY 2023 funding for the program,” reads the letter.  The letter stresses that CHGME is a critical investment in the United States’ medical future to ensure children have the care they need across provider settings.
