Working Groups: Health

Advocacy and collaboration.

The poorest region of the United States has no public hospital, and Texas' refusal to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act has left more than 300,000 RGV residents unable to receive healthcare services because they cannot afford them.

  In the face of these challenges, this working group has pulled together more than thirty community-based organizations from across the region in an effort to hold local and state elected officials accountable to constituents who have been left to the mercy of a for-profit health system.
