LifeLong Medical Care Joins Statewide “Get Out the Vote” Effort

Contributed by LifeLong Medical Care

In advance of the November 3rd election, LifeLong joined a statewide effort to Get Out the Vote (GOTV). As part of this effort, we are taking part in the My Vote My Health Campaign, with support from AltaMed in Los Angeles. We want to ensure that our patients, staff and the communities we serve are able to vote. We have been engaging our patients during visits and reminder calls; in waiting rooms, exam rooms and hallways with signage and video PSA’s; during vitals, BP check, and consultations; and finally at check-out/next appointment, sending each patient home with a flier, sticker or tote bag to remind them to vote. Voting is an important expression of advocacy, about which LifeLong CEO David B. Vliet is passionate.

We’re pleased that David was chosen by his peers to lead the California Primary Care Association (CPCA) as Board Chair for the next year. Looking ahead to after the election, CPCA advocacy priorities include payment reform (aka “PPS modernization), retention of telehealth reimbursements, and navigating challenges to the 340B program.
