These summer 2017 repeal bills ultimately did not pass. We thank our members and partners for their support of and engagement in this campaign. <em>Contact: <a href="mailto:mpauley@hanys.org">Mike Pauley</a></em></p> http://www.hanys.org/news/index.cfm?storyid=5024 2017-12-01T14:00:00-05:00 Advocacy,Federal,Government Affairs Innovation Spotlight—Triple Aim: Good Samaritan Fights Obesity with Healthier Families Program <p> What's so great about going to class with your parents?
