Investing in the Health Care Workforce
National Health Service Corps and
the Affordable Care Act
The Affordable Care Act reauthorizes the NHSC through 2015
When you don't have access to primary care, small health problems
grow into big ones. Chronic conditions that could be managed spiral
out of control … Thanks to the National Health Service Corps, more
Americans can see a doctor and get the health care they need. The
investments we made are improving health, creating access to care,
(and) fueling economic activity nationwide.
- Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
