Welcoming the 115th Congress and New Administration

President Reagan said in his first inaugural address, “In the eyes of many in the world, this every-four-years ceremony we accept as normal is nothing short of a miracle.” He was speaking, of course, about the peaceful transition of power from one group of fairly elected lawmakers to another. And in keeping with our name, We Work For Health looks forward to working with the 115th Congress and the new Administration.

Almost 60 new Senators and Representatives and more than 400 returning members were sworn into Congress earlier this month, and on January 20, the nation will welcome its 45th President and members of his new administration. We are excited for the opportunity to work with them to improve the health of all Americans.

We Work For Health and our partners have already started reaching out to members of the 115th Congress and that process will continue with the 2017 Fly-In this summer, which provides an opportunity to meet with Senators and Representatives face-to-face and discuss issues that affect our patients, our business, and our industry.

As with every Congress and Administration, we may not always agree. But We Work For Health will continue to work tirelessly with elected officials to find real solutions that support medical innovation and create a healthier America.
