Earlier this month, Rep. Mary Gay Scanlon (D-PA) toured the clinic of RWC-340B member AIDS Care Group (ACG), located in Chester, PA. During Rep. Scanlon’s visit, the ACG team discussed the 340B program and shared stories about how the 340B program helps them to serve their patient population. Elected to Congress in a special election in February 2018, Rep. Scanlon said that she is learning about the program.
On-site visits provide an invaluable opportunity for RWC-340B members to show their Congressional representatives the important work they do for HIV/AIDS patients and to discuss the role of the 340 program in treatment. Congratulations to ACG for communicating to Rep. Scanlon about the importance of 340B for HIV/AIDS patients!
