Health Policy and Advocacy

The Tennessee Primary Care Association’s governmental relations and policy activities are critical to the success of Community Health Centers in Tennessee and across the nation.

TPCA educates our members about federal and state policy issues that impact their organizations. We also educate government officials about primary health care in medically underserved communities.
