Northeast Philadelphia City Council Budget Hearing

4/29/2013

Healthy Philadelphia and our fight for a new health center in the Northeast was well represented at Philadelphia City Council Northeast Budget Hearing on April 29, 2013. While you will definitely have trouble reading what our signs say, surely the City Council members were able to read our statements loud and clear:

“We need new health center in Northeast,” “Please help! More health care in NE,”, and the small blue signs are the most convincing of all: “9 MONTHS: Wait for Appointment at Health Center 10.” Testimony was given by Sue Rosenthal, Chair of the Community Advisory Board for Health Center #10, Tre Alexander, a Northeast Resident, and Carol Rogers, Healthy PHiladelphia Director.
