Cover the Uninsured Week March 10—16


A range of events to highlight the problems of the uninsured will take place across the nation during Cover the Uninsured Week, March 10—16, 2003. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and other supporting organizations, including the Catholic Health Association and the American Hospital Association, have targeted 27 cities for major events, including four markets served by Catholic Health Initiatives: Denver, Colo., Des Moines, Iowa, Little Rock, Ark., and Tacoma, Wash. However, market-based organizations in non-targeted locations are also encouraged to organize events, such as health fairs, town hall meetings and interfaith activities, during this week.
