Digital Organizer – Harrisburg, PAFull time @Pennsylvania Health Access Network posted 2 weeks ago
Since 2010, the Pennsylvania Health Access Network (PHAN) has been fighting for access to affordable, high-quality, equitable healthcare for all Pennsylvanians. That means pushing for real change like lowering prescription drug costs, ending harmful billing practices by large hospitals and insurers, reducing medical debt, and much more.
PHAN works to ensure that all Pennsylvanians have a voice when decisions are made that will impact their communities’ health. We have a proven track record of building power in local communities to fight for a better healthcare system, whether it’s pushing back against the high cost of health insurance, winning Medicaid Expansion, or standing with seniors against corporate decisions that interfere with getting life-saving care. We build power where it matters the most: in local communities all across Pennsylvania.
