Public Affairs

Both inside and outside the halls of government, Legacy’s public affairs practice moves public policy to improve the lives of the patients and communities we serve. Along the way, we – with the rest of the nation’s large community health centers – save the American health care system $24 billion each year.

Our 2017 issue advocacy portfolio is made up of five core areas:  the Affordable Care Act, childhood literacy, HIV, LGBT, and autism . We take our advocacy to multiple stakeholders across Texas and in Washington through high-impact lobbying and communications campaigns.
