Congratulations to two of the Council’s friends and colleagues on being designated Champions of Change by the White House. Linda Walling, Executive Director, of Faithful Reform in Health Care (and soon to be a NC resident) and native North Carolinian Adam Searing, Director of the Health Access Coalition for the North Carolina Justice Center, were honored for their dedication to improving access to health care. These individuals are helping others in their community understand the impact and opportunities from the Affordable Care Act.
Faithful Reform in Health Care is the largest interfaith coalition of national, state and local organizations and individuals working for accessible and affordable health care. As its ED, Linda has partnered with the Council in working for health care reform for the last three years. Under Adam’s leadership, the Health Access Coalition is North Carolina’s leading voice for progressive health care, and he has been a friend of the Council, leading workshops and working with us in joint efforts.
